Science

Since time in memorial humankind has always inquired into and wondered how the natural world works and this naturally curiosity leads us to the study of Science. Science allows students the opportunity to develop an understanding of human ingenuity, and it encourages inquiry, investigation and thinking skills with application to real-life situations.

At Ara School we envisage our classroom teachers using local resources as a catalyst for scientific inquiry. Trips to science museums, observatories and local network systems will form the basis of the units of inquiry. This will reaffirm students’ understanding and acquisition of new concepts, knowledge and skills through the zone of proximal development.
