We all share in a vision of achieving excellence in Science and Technology at par with that of developed countries. Science and Technology are shaping the world. Social and economic development area, to a large content, is dependent on Science and Technology. The learners should be given enough time to perform the activity, record data, analyze and interpret results and discuss and evaluate within groups and with the whole class. The learning objectives herein aim to provide the learners an opportunity to develop concepts and acquire the manipulative, creative and high-order thinking skills.

These pertain to health and sanitation, nutrition, food production, and the environment and its conservation.
