"Science is an exciting subject which allows students to get hands on to investigate and question the world around them. We encourage students to present and test their own ideas to develop a critical understanding of science. Scientific understanding is essential for everyone in the modern world in order to make informed choices and decisions about new technologies that are and will one day be available."
