Specialized Science 12. Don’t be alarmed by its name! Specialized Science 12 is a little bit of “this” and a little bit of “that”. Topics of study are chosen from among the different senior science courses offered at Esquimalt and even those that are not offered at our school. This course is not about mathematical formulae or chemical equations. It is about exploring some interesting science topics at a beginner’s level. Please note:This course fulfills the graduation requirements for a senior science credit. It is NOT an acceptable science course for entrance into most university programs. It is typically considered to be a grade 11 science course – but it gets a cool grade 12 name!
