Key Learning Area
We aim to enable students to
- acquire the basic scientific knowledge and concepts for living in and contributing to a scientific and technological world;
- master scientific skills in performing and designing experiments;
- develop the ability to inquire and to solve problems;
- be acquainted with the language of science and be equipped with the skills in communicating ideas in science related contexts;
- develop curiosity and interest in science;
- recognize the usefulness and limitations of science and the interactions between science, technology and society and develop an attitude of responsible citizenship, including respect for the environment and commitment to the wise use of resources;
- be able to appreciate and understand the evolutionary nature of scientific knowledge;
- be able to apply their acquired knowledge in solving daily life problems.

Professional development initiative of the Science Department:
Lesson study on Groupwork as a pedagogical strategy to facilitate student learning in junior science
In the academic year (20-21), we conducted a school-based professional development project in the Science Department. Using lesson study as our major development approach, we explore using groupwork as a pedagogical strategy to facilitate student learning in S.2 Integrated Science (ISC). The topics and areas covered in the project include the following: evaluating eye models, investigation design about photosynthesis, making better pH indicators, solving electric circuit puzzles and free body diagrams.
During lesson observations, active participation and high engagement of students in learning activities were common and frequent scenes in almost all lesson trials. They were highly motivated and enjoyed activity-based learning tasks.
Participating teachers actively involved in the lesson study and tried out new classroom practices, modified those practices after evaluation in order to improve the effectiveness of student learning. Teachers are highly motivated in this project and generally find the lesson studies meaningful and fruitful in enhancing student learning.
