Science at Davenies encourages the boys to flourish as independent learners, focussing around the phenomena of our everyday world.
Progress is made by trail and failure; the failures are generally a hundred times more numerous than the success; yet they are usually left unchronicled.
At Davenies we wish for the boys to work without the fear of failure, to create a boy-centric scientific environment that promotes progress and nurtures life skills and problem-solving.
We challenge the boys’ learning by providing a vast range of experiences in practical activities. This will enable the boys to generate an ability to work and solve problems set out for them.
Science is the pursuit and application of knowledge and understanding of the natural and social world following a systematic methodology based on evidence.
