Throughout all Key Stages students learn about the different way science has an impact on our everyday lives. Where relevant, students will either consider the impact of science on different aspects of culture, religion, political implications and how these impact of society. Students build up skills that help them work together as teams and learn how to solve problems through enquiry based learning. The course also allows students to reflect and their learning and consider ways to improve their progress.
