Louise: “How did you get here?”
Johnny: “Well, basically, there was this little dot, right? And the dot went bang and the bang expanded. Energy formed into matter, matter cooled, matter lived, the amoeba to fish, to fish to fowl, to fowl to frog, to frog to mammal, the mammal to monkey, to monkey to man, amo amas amat, quid pro quo, memento mori, ad infinitum, sprinkle on a little bit of grated cheese and leave under the grill till Doomsday.”
From the movie Naked, written by Mike Leigh
Here at Moor Park we believe that Science is not just a subject to be studied as part of the curriculum but involves a much broader breadth of study, particularly in such an environment as we have at Moor Park. We believe that to find out about anything you have to learn to ask questions: observe carefully, think and then ask more questions.
Studying Science makes it easier to answer some of the questions asked, as you have more understanding and knowledge available, yet can be safe and have fun at the same time.
Science is taught by the form teachers in their classroom up to Year Two. Years Three to Year Eight are taught in fully equipped laboratories with our beautiful 85 acres of grounds regularly becoming part of the classroom.
