7-8 Science

The Science curriculum is covered in an interesting and unique way in the Bhaktivedanta Swami Gurukula.  The standard government based syllabus is systematically implemented alongside added insight from relevant aspects of the Gaudiya Vaishnava scripture.  Categorisation of matter, examination of the universe's cosmology, and other interconnected theories of the ancient Vedic societies are carefully included in the core curriculum so that students can best understand their cultural position in a wholesome, educated way.

The Stage 5 (years 9 and 10) syllabus is slightly different to the Stage 4 (years 7 and 8), with an added level of foundational sophistication based on the growing maturity of the students.  Students are encouraged to be critical and concise throughout the study of Science.

Some of the subjects of the scriptures that one may find in the Science curriculum at the Bhaktivedanta Gurukula are:
The categorisation of matter via the Sankhya philosophy.
The cosmology of the Puranas, particularly the Srimad Bhagavatam.
The comparison of cosmology of the Siddhantas, particularly the Surya Siddhanta.
The theory of Evolution based on the 8,400,000 species of life.
The opinions on technology found in the scriptures, particularly the Mahabharata.
The comparison of agrarian and industrial economies and social systems,
