Science

At Huntingtower Academy, following the Chris Quigley curriculum for Science, we believe the characteristics of a good scientist are:

• The ability to think independently and raise questions about working scientifically and the knowledge and skills that it brings. 

• Confidence and competence in the full range of practical skills, taking the initiative in, for example, planning and carrying out scientific investigations. 

• Excellent scientific knowledge and understanding which is demonstrated in written and verbal explanations, solving challenging problems and reporting scientific findings.

• High levels of originality, imagination or innovation in the application of skills.

• The ability to undertake practical work in a variety of contexts, including fieldwork.

• A passion for science and its application in past, present and future technologies.
