In science and technology, students explore the natural and made worlds. They learn how to apply scientific and technological skills, knowledge and understanding across a broad range of contexts.

Science 7-10 provides a way of inquiring about the world around us. It explores evidence and investigates ways to discover, develop and produce solutions to real-world problems. Science emphasises the skills for working scientifically, as well as critical and creative thinking to address scientific issues.

In Years 11 and 12, students can choose from different science disciplines, including:

  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Permaculture
  • Investigating Science
  • Physics
  • Marine Studies

It provides a way of answering interesting and important questions about the biological, physical and technological world. Scientific knowledge is able to be tested and students will undertake this enquiry process for themselves. They will see how scientists from around the world have worked together to investigate the world around them and how the knowledge they have discovered has led to the modern world we live in.
