School of Natural Science

Cultivating extraordinary artists and thinkers to set off the sparks of genius

Science is the study of the nature and behaviour of natural things and the knowledge that we obtain about them. The study of Science is regarded as ways in which one can gain knowledge about the phenomena of the workings of the natural world. Science is the concerted human effort to understand, or to understand better, the history of the natural world and how the natural world works, with observable physical evidence as the basis of that understanding. A wide range of topics are covered by it.
