The New Zealand Curriculum: Science

In the science learning area , students explore how both the natural physical world and science itself work so that they can participate as critical, informed, and responsible citizens in a society in which science plays a significant role. We can make use of the natural connections that exist between science and the other learning areas, the values , the principles , and the key competencies .

Achievement aims and objectives

The fundamental aims of science education are expressed as a series of achievement aims, grouped by strand. The achievement objectives at each level are derived from the aims and are similarly grouped by strand.
