Interdisciplinary Science - Biosphere - Student Document 

The World’s biodiversity is in serious decline. We do not know the total number of species that were on this planet, say, at the beginning of the Second millennium, but by the beginning of the Third, we have identified 1.4 million species and we think there are at least 20 million, based upon individual studies of trees in rain forest for example and estimates of ecosystem diversity. How can we measure the usefulness of species to us and how many of them do we need to maintain the Biosphere sustainably?

Interdisciplinary Science - Habitable Worlds - Student Document

Habitable Worlds examines one of the greatest questions mankind has ever asked: are we alone? This module has been designed to aid you in your search for answers, but bear in mind no one person you encounter can be considered an expert in the whole field. You will need to research from multiple sources and may well end up disagreeing with one another on certain issues.

Interdisciplinary Science - Earth Through Time - Student Document

The Earth Through Time module examines our planet in terms of its major systems; the atmosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, geosphere and the biosphere, all of which are constantly interacting. The module explores the topic of climate change throughout Earth’s history; climate change is not just a contemporary phenomenon, it has happened in the geological past at times abruptly and catastrophically

Interdisciplinary Science - Science of the Invisible - Student Document

In Science of the Invisible you will explore the structure of microscopic objects from cells to molecules to atoms. At the smallest scale the world is governed by quantum mechanics which controls the properties of atoms and their binding to form molecules. You will also learn about the states of matter, gases liquids and solids, and how their properties arise from the properties of their constituents.

Interdisciplinary Science - Evolution - Student Document

Evolution by Natural Selection is the fundamental theorem of the biosciences, and it is a concept which is increasingly applied to other areas including computing, economics and statistics. This module aims to introduce the fundamental concept of evolution by selective adaptation and then to analyse an in-depth example of evolutionary change.

Interdisciplinary Science - Nanoscale Frontiers - Student Document

In this module you will explore basic cell biology and cell imaging techniques. using quantum dots. You will also be introduced to the flow of genetic information through the cell, whereby the DNA inherited by an organism leads to specific traits by dictating the synthesis of proteins.
