Experimental Sciences

Biology/ Chemistry/ Physics/ Design technology

Course Description

The subjects offered all promote an understanding of the concepts, principles and applications of the respective disciplines together with an appreciation of the methodology of the experimental sciences in general. Practical laboratory skills are developed and collaborative learning is encouraged by means of an interdisciplinary group project.

A common curriculum model applies to all in Group 4. This model offers a parallel structure at both the higher and standard levels whereby a core of material is studied by all candidates. This is further supplemented by the study of options. An awareness of moral and ethical issues is fostered and social responsibility promoted through the examination of local and global examples.
