Cells, organs and body systems – At GTAC

In Levels 7 and 8, the science curriculum focus is on explaining phenomena involving science and its applications. In this program, students form teams of health specialists to explore case studies of disease and their effect on society. They use microscopes to view cells and apply health technologies to learn about organs and body systems and how they function to keep people healthy. They link form and function at a cellular level and explore the organisation and interconnectedness of body systems. They make predictions and propose explanations, drawing on evidence to support their views so they can design interventions to improve the health of patients.
