ORIGIN OF AN ENLIGHTENED WORLDVIEW

THE NATURAL SCIENCES

A GLIMPSE INTO THE BREEDING GROUNDS OF TECHNOLOGICAL PROGRESS

When we talk of technological progress, the natural sciences are always implied. Material innovations, process optimisation, medical advancements or the next big technological breakthrough – none of them would be possible without the natural sciences. Nearly all progress relevant for society has its origins in basic science research. 

The global standard of education in chemistry, physics, medicine, biotechnology and genetic engineering, in the environmental sciences and information technology have a marked impact on our daily lives. The natural sciences present enormous opportunities, but also risks that have to be managed accordingly. Which makes foundational science education essential for an enlightened worldview in every respect.

PHYSICS

THE LAWS OF NATURE

Physics is about the causal relationships between phenomena. Understanding these sheds light on the laws governing nature and technology. Only once they have been thoroughly understood is it possible to deduce predictions that serve as a basis for making further advancements. Experiments and measurements are essential for generating empirical insights and are therefore a proven method of acquiring knowledge. Physics is better suited to experiential learning than almost any other subject. Natural and technological phenomena can be explored and observed first hand via field experiments with the help of physical models. This is not only exciting, but demonstrably augments the learning effect too. Pupils learn-by-doing how physics is applicable to the world around them and how it can be used to overcome technical challenges in everyday life. 

BIOLOGY

THE RELATIVITY OF HUMANS AND THE ENVIRONMENT

From cell to biosphere: The world of biology encompasses all life and gives us humans the necessary understanding of how our own body and other organisms on this planet work. In order to understand the interdependencies, it takes insights and a change of perspective within the biological system as a whole. Learners thus come to the realisation that humans are both a part of and a shaper of the natural world at the same time. Key aha-moments about dependencies that play a crucial role, especially in light of the urgent rethinking required regarding the issues of climate change and sustainability. A knowledge of biology is also necessary for a basic understanding of health, life planning, medicine and food production.

CHEMISTRY

THE SUBSTANCE OF THIS WORLD

Chemistry lessons are generally associated with bubbling apparatus. But there is much more to it than that, namely the entire material world and its often astonishing transformation processes. Particle and structural changes can be made tangible here and thus provide insight into chemical reactions and environmental phenomena. Experiments elucidate the fundamental properties of key substances, their proper handling and convey a basic understanding about the conversion of energy. By linking theoretical models with experimental results, the respective insights are consolidated and can be drawn upon in chemistry-related professions later on.

NATURE & TECHNOLOGY

THE MOTHER OF ALL EDUCATION

The subject of nature and technology makes a key contribution to general education. It paves the way for learning skills that enable us to act appropriately and responsibly in our lifeworld: a world with a globally networked information society whose self-perception is determined by scientific and technological progress. Strictly speaking, the subject is a modular conglomerate of interdependent disciplines including biology, scientific work, computer science, physics, chemistry and geography. Experiments and projects are conducted to consolidate the acquired insights, and through interaction with animate and inanimate everyday phenomena, hone observational skills and train manual dexterity. The integrated subject of nature and technology fosters other capabilities too: for example, abstract thinking and logical reasoning, which are required in nearly all areas of life.
