“Science is simply the word we use to describe a method of organising our curiosity.”
In its basic form, science is the study of the structure and behaviour of the physical and natural world through observation and experimentation. At Edgar Wood Academy, we aim to push this further by providing you with opportunities to link science to other subjects, build scientific skill and cultivate your curiosity for the world around you. In Year 7 we will explore those building blocks to understand difficult scientific concepts such as cells, forces and chemical reactions. We will study all three disciplines (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) using a range of teaching styles and approaches that will enable you to continually enquire and ask questions.
You will also have opportunities to gain hands-on experiences of science using a range of practicals, educational visits to key innovative scientific institutions and visits from inspirational scientists from different backgrounds. You will be able to join our Science Club where you will dissect organs/organisms, perform specialist science experiments, and think critically to generate hypotheses for important questions. At Edgar Wood Academy, we hope to build you into ‘young scientists’ of the future!
