With inquiry at the core, the MYP Sciences framework aims to guide students to independently and collaboratively investigate issues through research, observation and experimentation. The MYP Sciences curriculum must explore the connections between science and everyday life. As they investigate real examples of science applications, students will discover tensions and dependencies between science and morality, ethics, culture, economics, politics, and the environment.

 The aims of MYP Sciences are to encourage and enable students to:

  • understand and appreciate science and its implications;
  • consider science as a human endeavor with benefits and limitations;
  • cultivate analytical, inquiring and flexible minds that pose questions, solve problems, construct explanations and judge arguments;
  • develop skills to design and perform investigations, evaluate evidence and reach conclusions;
  • build an awareness of the need to effectively collaborate and communicate;
  • apply language skills and knowledge in a variety of real-life contexts;
  • develop sensitivity towards the living and non-living environments; and
  • reflect on learning experiences and make informed choices.
