  • Curriculum Aims

    • ​The Science (S1-3) curriculum provides science-related learning experiences that develop students’ interest in science and to lay a foundation for their studies of various science curricula at the senior secondary level. It also focuses on the development of scientific literacy for living in and contributing towards a scientific and technological world.

    • The aims of Science are to enable students to:

      • develop curiosity and interest in science;

      • acquire fundamental scientific knowledge and skills, and appreciate the relationship between science and other disciplines;

      • develop the ability to make scientific investigation and solve problems;

      • use the language of science to communicate science-related ideas;

      • develop a basic understanding of the nature of science;

      • develop the ability to integrate and apply scientific knowledge and skills with other related disciplines;

      • recognise the social, ethical, economic, environmental and technological implications of science, and develop an attitude of responsible citizenship and a commitment to promote personal and community health;

      • be prepared for further studies in STEM-related disciplines; and

      • become lifelong learners in science for personal development.
