The Science program provides students the opportunity to learn how scientists work and how scientific knowledge is obtained in the 21st century. The inquiry approach, in which students learn through experimentation, is used to help students grasp the excitement of science. State-of-the-art facilities and a commitment to 21st century learning add to the excitement. Being a UNESCO school, the Science Department has chosen water as a common theme running throughout the courses. Water, the sustenance of life, is a shrinking commodity. To be educated, socially responsible scientists, students must understand water’s implication in the environment, health care and human rights. Further, under the pillars of UNESCO, bioethics is discussed in many Science courses. The themes of basic human rights, genetic testing and intercultural learning are emphasized, among many others.
