An understanding of science helps to develop a curiosity and willingness to explore and ask questions and to speculate on the changing world in which students live. People who understand the scientific process are more likely to make thoughtful and critical decisions about issues which may influence their own lifestyle, health and environment and to comprehend the social implications of their decisions.
At NDSHS students explore science through the process of inquiry and design and carry out experiments. This understanding of the nature of scientific inquiry and the ability to use a range of scientific methods teach students how to make these critical evidence based conclusions.
