What is Chemistry ?
Objectives of the subject
The purpose of science education is to enable students to gain learning experience through understanding and applying the scientific process of scientific concepts and principles, and to understand the impact of the development of science and technology. This experience will lay the foundation for students to make informed judgments based on scientific evidence, further develop in the field of science and technology, and become lifelong learners of science and technology.
Specific Objectives in current academic year
