SCIENCE IN THE 21ST CENTURY NO LONGER FITS IN A NEAT LITTLE BOX
Science, at its very nature, is an ever-changing field. New hypotheses are proposed and new research begins. Scientific study often creates as many new questions as it answers. As American (and British) Scientist, Venkatraman Ramakrishnan noted, "Science is curiosity, testing and experimenting." Knowledge is gained, not by simply studying traditional subjects such as language, maths, science, arts, social studies, and PSPE, but through trans-disciplinary study and exploration. In the Primary Years Programme (PYP), science is about exploration. Students naturally explore the relationships between the biological, chemical and physical aspects of the world.
