Department Brief

BBSS science department strives to develop and nurture the inquisitive minds of our students through various inquiry approaches in our curriculum such as Problem-Based Learning (PBL), 5E Instructional Model, Modelling Instructional Strategy and Differentiated Instruction strategies.     

The central aspect of the various inquiry approaches lies the spirit of scientific inquiry which promotes the desire in our students to ask questions and plan for research investigations. Our research programme hones the process and research skills in our students to conduct research projects that benefits the society and environment.

Our students are exposed to myriad of activities within and outside of school to enhance the acquisition of scientific knowledge and relevance of science in daily life. We provide opportunities for students to compete in various Olympiads, participate in science research fairs and learning journeys.

Keeping pace with the advancement in technology and the school’s direction in incorporating Applied Learning Programme (ALP) into the science curriculum, students are exposed to the usage of sensors and dataloggers for experiments, enrichment and scientific research.
