SCIENCE

FACULTY INTRODUCTION
Science is vital to everyday life and allows us to understand and shape the world in which we live and influence its future. Scientists play a key role in meeting society’s needs in areas such as medicine, energy, industry, material development, the environment and sustainability. As the importance and application of science continues to grow and develop, it is important that everyone has an informed view of science. Engineering, design and technology use the findings of scientists so science has developmental influence in these areas also.

Our courses provide opportunities for learners to recognise the impact science makes on developing sustainability, and its effects on the environment, on society and on the lives of themselves and others.

Our courses allow learners to understand and investigate the world in an engaging and enjoyable way. They develop learners’ ability to think analytically, creatively and independently, and to make reasoned evaluations. Our courses provide opportunities for learners to acquire and apply knowledge, to evaluate environmental and scientific issues, to consider risk, and to make informed decisions. This can lead to learners developing an informed and ethical view of topical issues. Learners will develop skills in communication, collaborative working and leadership, and apply critical thinking in new and unfamiliar contexts to solve problems.
