Science and Technology

In Science and Technology students learn about the natural and built environments by investigating, by designing and making and by using technology.

Learning in science and technology draws on and contributes to learning in the other key learning areas. Science is concerned with finding out about the world in a systematic way. Findings are accepted if they can be verified.

Our students come to view science not just as a body of knowledge, but also as a process of investigation. Because knowledge in our modern world is being generated at a phenomenal rate, part of a quality science education is ensuring our students acquire the processes and skills needed to access this knowledge.

The science syllabus is divided into six strands:

  1. Working scientifically, Design and production
  2. Living world
  3. Material world
  4. Physical world
  5. Earth and Space
  6. Digital technologies
