Environmental science and technology (STE) and Science and the Environment (SE)
These programs are offered as a continuation of science and technology programs offered in the general education and applied general education pathways. They are usually optional and are added to the list of courses to be taken in Secondary 4.
These courses place more emphasis on citizenship and scientific skills. They attach particular importance to the development of students’ critical thinking, and to consolidating their scientific and technological studies as a prerequisite to optional chemistry and physics courses in Secondary 5.
