SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

In keeping with the objectives of the Science and Technology Program of Study, SOFAD offers classroom and distance learning resources that are designed to help learners build scientific knowledge and develop an organized working approach, as well as enhance their reasoning ability, intuition, creativity and critical thinking skills through systematic observation, questioning, experimentation and the use of specialized language. Our learning guides and complementary multimedia resources help learners master the language of science and technology so they can process information and find connections among data as well as interpret, analyze and manage situational problems that foster critical thinking.
