Integrated Science

The G7-G8 Foundation Years Programme in TKHC is based on the ‘Exploring Science’ programme of study from the UK. Our science programme comprises Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. The study of science aims to provide students with both a body of knowledge and an understanding of the scientific approach to problem-solving. The ability to formulate hypotheses, design and carry out experiments to test them, and evaluate results constitutes the framework within which specific content is presented.

The TKHC Science Department aims to provide a stimulating environment which develops inquiring, knowledgeable and deep thinking students in the context of an international and multicultural community. Through the teaching and learning of science, we aim to provide challenging learning opportunities that inspire students to excel.

Among other skills, students are expected to:

  • Use basic laboratory equipment safely and efficiently
  • Make sensible estimates and take accurate measurements
  • Make scientifically supported arguments

Students are also encouraged to relate the classroom content and laboratory skills to the realities of life as they develop critical-thinking and problem-solving skills. Science courses promote an awareness of the increasingly international context of scientific activity — its impact as well as limitations — and the constant evolution of scientific knowledge and understanding. Our programme promotes a wide range of activities such as experiments, research findings, and online interactive activities that offer all individuals opportunities to reach their full potential and communicate their ideas articulately. To this end, we encourage students to be self-reflective and to take responsibility for their learning.
