Students explore key ideas such as the effect of forces on an object’s motion or shape, the constantly changing atmosphere and the structure of the Earth. They discover the structures contained within cells, including genes, which determine the development and processes of entire organisms. Through inquiry-based learning, students have the opportunity to use practical skills to investigate scientific phenomena of the natural world in well-equipped laboratories, supported by experienced and enthusiastic staff. In addition, students analyse and develop theories to understand the social, ethical and economic implications of science.
