A Brief Introduction to the Science Department
Science curriculum at TPS follows the traditional three strands of biology, chemistry, and physics, with "working scientifically" threaded throughout each unit. Students learn ambitious and fascinating knowledge about why the universe works as it does, with topics such as astronomy and cosmology, atoms, and ecology opening up the secrets of nature to all. The curriculum incorporates a significant proportion of problem-solving, so that students experience the scientific ways of working, of asking questions about the world and using experiment and rational enquiry to reach an answer.
