Fides, Spes and Caritas

And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

Science (S1-2)


The Science (S1-2) curriculum provides science-related learning experiences that develop students’ interest in science and to lay a foundation for their studies of various science curricula at the senior secondary level. It also focuses on the development of scientific literacy for living in and contributing towards a scientific and technological world.

The broad aims of the Science (S1-2) curriculum are to enable students to:

  • develop curiosity and interest in science;
  • acquire fundamental scientific knowledge and skills, and appreciate the relationship between science and other disciplines;
  • develop the ability to make scientific investigation (SI) and solve problems;
  • use the language of science to communicate science-related ideas;
  • develop a basic understanding of the nature of science (NOS);
  • develop the ability to integrate and apply scientific knowledge and skills
  • with other related disciplines;
  • recognise the social, ethical, economic, environmental and technological implications of science, and develop an attitude of responsible citizenship and a commitment to promote personal and community health;
  • be prepared for further studies in STEM-related disciplines; and
  • become lifelong learners in science for personal development.



The curriculum content is organised into 11 Units. It is designed to cover the key ideas of science, as well as the social and technological implications of science. Each Unit allows students to explore and investigate a specific theme in Science.

The Units for S1 to S3 are listed below:


S1 Unit 1: Introducing Science


Unit 2: Water


Unit 3: Looking at Living Things


Unit 4: Cells, Human Reproduction and Heredity


Unit 5: Energy


Unit 6: Matter as Particles


Unit 7: Living Things and Air


Unit 8: Making Use of Electricity


Unit 9: Common Acids and Alkalis


Unit 10: Sensing the Environment


Unit 11: Force and Motion



School-based Curriculum

A school-based curriculum using Science as a ‘Leading’ subject in STEM education has been developed to nurture students’ positive value in the perspective of the respect to life and environmental literacy, as well as enhance students’ conceptual understanding, science process skills, and self-regulated learning abilities.



Major concerns


Priority Tasks

  • Nurturing students’ positive values regarding their respect for life and environment; and their commitment through science education
  • Empowering students’ scientific literacy and self-regulated learning abilities by using innovative and technology-enhanced strategies


Recurrent Task

Cultivating an English learning environment that facilitates students’ learning science in English



Bridging Strategies

At the junior secondary level, the Science (S1-2) curriculum enables students to further develop their scientific knowledge and skills and provide a firm foundation for them to pursue their studies at the senior secondary level. At the senior secondary level, students can extend their learning by studying one or more Science elective subjects including Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Science (Mode II: Combined Science) and/or by engaging in science-related learning activities.
