Science is the area of study where students:
- Plan and conduct investigations to test about scientific ideas and explanations.
- Learn about the biological, chemical, physical, medical, engineering and technological world.
- Understand that scientific knowledge has been developed over time by scientists from cultures all around the world.
- Learn that the scientific understanding of the world is constantly changing due to continuing research and new technology (for example, the current debate on global warming, climate change and stem cell research).
Science education enable students to:
Develop the confidence, knowledge and skills to find answers to their own questions about the biological, chemical, physical and technological works and become better informed citizens.
