“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better”
- Albert Einstein
The intent of the science department is to convey to students that science underpins everything.
At The king’s, we study:
• Physics to be able to understand the fundamental principles that govern all Energy and matter in the Universe. Physics gives us tools to understand nature from the scale of a sub-a-tomic particles up to the inter-galactic scale of the universe;
• Chemistry to be able to understand the nature of substances: how they are composed, their behaviors, and their physical and chemical properties. Chemistry allows us to identify unknown substances, monitor concentrations and synthesize new chemicals. Above all, chemistry is about finding solutions to the problems that concern us and our surroundings;
• Biology to be able to understand life and thereby understand ourselves. Biology allows us an understanding od the amazing complexity of many life processes and mechanisms. Biology encourages us to seek out reasons for strange, surprising and sometimes usual observations.
Science provides some incredibly challenging topics helping to gauge an awareness of topical issues and their impact on the climate, earth as well as human growth.
