Students at Moulsham High School study Science to help them understand the natural world and to get to grips both with the technology they already use in daily life and that which they will encounter later in the workplace.
Students are taught the methods of how science works. They think about the role of ideas and evidence in science, using examples from today and the work of famous scientists in the past. They also learn how to carry out scientific investigations through planning, finding and presenting evidence, thinking about what the evidence means, and asking what conclusions they can reach. Students will also be given opportunities to develop their critical thinking and independent enquiry skills in a variety of contexts within this subject.
