    Natural Sciences at Curro Online
    Natural Sciences at our online school consists of two components, namely Life Sciences and Physical Sciences. As our learners get to learn from home, they get quality online education in Life Sciences and Physical Sciences through live lessons with teachers.

    What does Life Sciences entail?
    At Curro Online, we cover the study of living things from molecular level to their interactions with one another and their environments. The scientific method explored in this subject through online learning includes formulating hypotheses and carrying out investigations and experiments as objectively as possible to test these hypotheses. With our approach to quality online education, repeated investigations are carried out and adapted. The methods and results are analysed, evaluated, and debated before the community of scientists accepts them as valid.

    At our online school, the online learning content includes human physiology and diseases, evolution, tissues, cells and molecular studies, structures and the processes in basic life systems and environmental studies, and more, all presented through live lessons with teachers.

    What does Physical Sciences entail?
    At Curro Online, Physical Sciences encompasses two aspects, namely Physics and Chemistry. Chemistry essentially considers the make-up and interaction of materials, while Physics broadly studies the effect of motion, forces and other phenomena (such as heat and electricity) in our daily lives. Chemistry relies significantly on the application of a large content base, while Physics generally tests thinking and mathematical skills.

    Through our approach to quality online education, topics covered by children who learn from home through our online school include mechanics, waves, electricity, magnetism, matter, chemical changes and systems, and more, all presented through live lessons with teachers.

    What are the career opportunities?
    Archaeology, conservationist, environmental journalism, environmental planning, geographical information services, historian, lecturing, political sciences, rural and urban planning, map making, weather bureau, tour guide, travel agent, town planning.

At our online school, the subject involves observing, representing, and investigating patterns and relationships between physical or social phenomena and mathematical objects. Through our approach to quality online education, the subject helps to develop mental processes that enhance logical and critical thinking, accuracy and problem-solving skills that will contribute in decision-making. Our online learning model and live lessons with teachers, help learners to understand how Mathematics is applicable beyond the context of the classroom.

      At Curro Online, learners pursuing high-level professions such as finance, engineering, research, aeronautics, and medicine may need high marks in Mathematics to be accepted at the university of their choice – our online school approach lets your child learn from home while still getting the best possible education in Mathematics through online learning.

      What will children learn?
      At Curro’s online school, learners will collect, analyse and organise quantitative data to evaluate and critique conclusions; use mathematical process skills to identify, investigate and solve problems creatively and critically; and communicate by using descriptions in words, graphs, symbols, tables and diagrams. Through our approach to online learning, learners gain quality online education and develop an understanding of how the subject can be applied beyond the classroom, by enjoying live lessons with teachers.

      What are the career opportunities?
      Actuary, architect, data analyst, dentist, engineer, information technologist, game developer, medical doctor, pharmacist, pilot, physicist, scientist, technician, technologist, town planner.
