Integrated Science

Curriculum Objectives

The Integrated Science curriculum provides science-related learning experiences that develop students’ interest in science and lay a foundation for their studies of various science curricula at the senior secondary level. It also focuses on the development of scientific literacy for living in and contributing towards a scientific and technological world.

The aims of the Integrated Science curriculum are to enable students to:

  • develop curiosity and interest in science;
  • acquire fundamental scientific knowledge and skills, and appreciate the relationship between science and other disciplines;
  • develop the ability to make scientific investigation and solve problems;
  • use the language of science to communicate science-related ideas;
  • develop a basic understanding of the nature of science;
  • develop the ability to integrate and apply scientific knowledge and skills with other related disciplines;
  • recognise the social, ethical, economic, environmental and technological implications of science, and develop an attitude of responsible citizenship and a commitment to promote personal and community health;
  • be prepared for further studies in STEAM-related disciplines; and
  • become lifelong learners in science for personal development.

Highlights of Academic Activities

G7 Life Wide Learning Day

This year, the Grade 7 students visited the Hong Kong Wetland Park on their Life Wide Learning Day. To further enhance the learning experience of students, our Science Department has used an e-learning platform, Seppo, to promote game-based learning. Students were required to go to different check points and answer the questions designed. The more the check points they could finish, the higher score they could have. During the two-hour visit, students participated actively in the competition and learn a lot through the journey.
