Science and technology students learn about climate change, ecology and biodiversity, water quality, water scarcity and water pollution in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
They also study global change and global economic development.
These subjects can be complex, but they all fall under one of the seven areas of science and engineering that are described in the US Department of Education’s (USDOE) Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) standards.
Science and Technology Standards The science and technologies standard for the 2018-19 school year is called Science and Technological Advancement Standards (STA).
This means that the curriculum includes: Introduction to science and technology and its applications; Concepts, theories and methods; Data analysis; Computational algorithms and systems; Data structures and algorithms; Data visualization; and Design and analysis of computer systems.
It also provides the following: The basic knowledge of physics and chemistry, including fundamental physics and quantum physics; Elementary math and statistics; Elementary science, physical sciences, and the social sciences; and The social sciences.
STEM courses are covered in English and maths, although in some countries they are also taught in French, German and Spanish.
A separate curriculum includes a range of science, technological and engineering related electives.
The Science and Technical Advancement Standard for the 2019-20 school year was released in December 2018.
It covers: Introduction and Theory of science; Computation and computer applications; Design and Analysis of computers and data; Computer and mathematical programming; Computer networking; Data structure and algorithms.
It provides a summary of the following topics: Data and information; Physical processes; Physical properties; Physical sciences and technology; Physical technology; Information and communication technologies; and Communication technologies.
Students learn about the history of science from ancient times to the present, as well as current research areas, topics and research projects.
The next level of science is known as Advanced Science.
This is the next level that is taught in schools in England, Scotland and Wales.
The course covers: Theory and measurement of physical systems; Computations and statistical analysis; Physical engineering and construction; Applied mathematics and statistics, including probability, statistics, linear algebra and statistics for discrete mathematics; and Computer science and software development.
Students also learn about advanced science such as biochemistry, genetics, biophysics, neuroscience and physical sciences.
Students in science courses learn about science and technological progress, such as new and emerging technologies, new materials and instruments and materials science and materials.
Students can take advanced science courses in either English or mathematics.
Students are also given a list of topics and courses they can choose from.
A science and tech degree in 2019 is required.
The following courses are available to students in the 2019 science and technical school year: Advanced Engineering and Science; Advanced Mathematics and Statistics; Applied Mathematics and Science.
Students who have been accepted to the 2019 school year will have the option of taking a science or tech degree as a part of their studies.
A career track certificate or a diploma in the field of science or technology is available.
Students with a STEM degree are encouraged to pursue careers in science or engineering.
Science Education The Science Education and Research (SEER) programme is designed to enable young people to gain practical skills in science.
It aims to provide a broad range of practical science training.
It teaches students about how science works, how it affects people, and how science is a tool to achieve the world’s most significant social and environmental goals.
Students gain practical experience in working with scientific data and methods and in designing experiments.
Students work alongside colleagues in research and teaching, and have access to a range and range of support services and learning opportunities.
Students may choose from a variety of science subjects including biology, chemistry, chemistry-biochemistry, physics, physics-electromagnetism, physics and biology-metabolism.
The programme covers courses from a wide range of subjects, including: Chemical Engineering; Chemistry, Materials and Methods; Materials Engineering; and Physical Chemistry.
This programme also includes a number of electives, such to computer science, physics or engineering physics.
Students have access, for example, to computer simulations, to information systems and software tools, and to a web of interdisciplinary research and support.
The SEER programme is an excellent opportunity for people from a diverse range of backgrounds to get practical skills with scientific and technological knowledge and skills.
Science is the first language that students learn in the first six years of secondary school.
This year, science subjects were also included in a number secondary school curricula in the UK.
Science Courses In the 2019 Science Education Framework, science courses are offered at the following levels: Advanced Science; Science and Engineering.
These courses cover subjects such as: Theory, methods and principles of science.
