Many BC science teachers were students when they first used Hebden Chemistry Student Workbooks.

It’s not surprising that they recommend the same books to their students.

  • Free Teachers’ Guides for both Grades 11 & 12

    The 2023 Hebden Chemistry Bursary Recipient

    We would like to thank each and every one of our participants in this year’s Hebden Bursary. This year, we received over 100 applications. It has been an honour reading all of the applications and truly a difficult task to narrow it down to just one winner. For the 2023 Hebden Bursary Award, we have selected Eman Brar as the winner! Eman is a student at Frank Hurt Secondary in Surrey, B.C..

    Eman intends on continuing the study of Chemistry at Kwantlen Polytechnic University in Surrey in September 2023. Over the next four years, Eman plans to pursue the study of Sciences towards the goal of getting her Bachelor of Science. During this time, she will be completing prerequisites for Medical School. After completing a Bachelor’s of Science, Eman would like to continue her studies in Med School with the ultimate goal of becoming a cardiologist. She would eventually like to go one to own her own clinic one day.

    Eman has obtained high academic standing while contributing greatly to her community. She has been actively involved in her community by volunteering with numerous organizations such as: Big Brother Big Sister, Rivera Living, Reading Buddy, and BC SPCA. In addition, Eman has also been a part of “Math Ninjas” where she has tutored children for free. This gives Eman great pleasure as she aims to be a positive influence in other people’s lives. Eman and some of her friends also created a an environmental club where they pick up garbage at local parks in an effort to keep their community as clean as possible. Eman has also been a part of several other various clubs at her school such as: student council, cancer association and more.

    Eman strongly demonstrates her desire to be a leader and I have no doubt that she will make an excellent cardiologist in the future. We wish her all the best in her future endeavours!

    Western Campus appreciates all applicants of the Hebden Bursary. We would like to graciously thank every one of the students and teachers who took the time to apply. While we read many applicants of well-deserving individuals, we have narrowed it down to one.

    As a side note, I’ve been teaching with the Hebden texts for 23 years now. They are by far, the best high school Chemistry texts ever written! In fact, I’m 55 now (yup, I started teaching late in life), but I used the old Hebden texts when I was in high school myself. The old Green and Yellow ones. I’m a great fan!
    What makes them the best is that they have lots of practice questions, and at various levels, and the answers are all worked out in detail in the back of the book, and these books are tailored to the curriculum, without overwhelming amounts of extra information. Detailed, but to the point.
