Integrated Science is an interdisciplinary subject which provides students with the opportunity to study issues relevant to Science in everyday life. Such study integrates perspectives from various disciplines including Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Earth Science and others.
An understanding of science is central to a young person’s preparedness for life in modern society. It enables an individual to participate fully in a society in which science and technology play a significant role. This understanding also empowers individuals to participate appropriately in the determination of public policy where issues of science and technology impact their lives. The inclusion of Integrated Science in the school curriculum will contribute significantly to shaping the quality of life through promotion of personal health practices and respect for the environment. The programme, therefore, aims at providing Caribbean learners with the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes that would help them negotiate an increasingly complex and dynamic technological environment in which they have to live and work, as well as contribute positively to the region and the world.

|MODULE 1||WORKING LIKE A SCIENTIST|
|MODULE 2||INVESTIGATING MATTER|
