KS4 Science - Twenty-First Century Science 1

Description

Twenty First Century Science is a new GCSE that is being piloted in 76 schools across England and Wales.

In this programme, we see Twenty First Century Science being taught at Haggerston School in Hackney, a comprehensive community school for 900 girls aged 11 to 16 years.

The pilot has three GCSE courses designed to meet the interests of different students - core, applied and general. Core is taken by all students; applied and general are alternative additional subjects.

We see the pilot in action, which shows different parts of the project. These include:

  • The most innovative part of the project, the core course, which covers major scientific explanations and the skills required to make judgements about science
  • The applied section, in which the students look at a much narrower field of science, but from the point of view of a practitioner
  • The general course, which is aimed at students who are interested in science as an academic pursuit
