Junior Cycle - Science

Junior Cycle - Science

The content studied for junior cycle science focuses on the development of students’ knowledge of and about science through the unifying strand “Nature of science” and the four contextual strands: Physical world, Chemical world, Biological world, and Earth and space. The aim of the course is to develop students’ evidence-based understanding of the natural world and their ability to gather and evaluate evidence; to consolidate and deepen their skills of working scientifically; to make them more self-aware as learners and become competent and confident in their ability to use and apply science in their everyday lives. While studying science students are exposed to the latest developments while illustrating how science is embedded everywhere in their lives. Learning by inquiry is an important aspect which aims to enhance student learning and enjoyment of science. From this, students can develop a sense of enjoyment in the learning of science, leading to a lifelong interest in science.
