Science Department Programmes
The Science Department
aims to nurture creative and values-driven learners with a life-long passion
for science. Through our programmes and initiatives, as well as the provision
of varied teaching & learning resources, we hope to deepen our learners'
love for Science and cultivate a healthy inquiring mind about the things around
Every student has a lively curiosity about Science in their daily life, the environment and the society.
To guide students in acquiring scientific knowledge, concepts and methodologies, develop process skills in scientific inquiry and inculcate attitudes and ethics to engage in science-related issues as an active contributor and reflective citizen.
Teaching Science as inquiry goes beyond presenting facts and scientific concepts. Students are provided opportunities to ask questions and are actively engaged in the collection and use of scientific evidence and formulate explanation based on scientific knowledge.
Teachers carry out the inquiry-based approach through hands-on learning, in realistic contexts for students to make connections with their own lives and environment in which they live.
Teachers use a variety of strategies to facilitate this inquiry process such as:
- Field trip
- Demonstrations & Investigations
- Concept cartoons
- Concept mapping
- Projects, model making
- Role play, drama, stories
