Course Information

Science provides a distinctive view and way of thinking about the world. The study of science has led to an evolving body of knowledge organised as an interrelated set of models, theories, laws, systems, structures and interactions. It is through this body of knowledge that science provides explanations for a variety of phenomena and enables sense to be made of the biological, physical and technological world. The students' understanding of science and its social and cultural contexts provides a basis for their future choices and ethical decisions about local and global applications and implications of science.

The study of science provides opportunities for students to develop the skills of working scientifically, thinking critically and creatively in problem-solving processes. These skills will be beneficial in further education, vocational pursuits and everyday life.
