Senior Science

The aim of Senior Science is provide learning experiences through which students will:

  • acquire knowledge and understanding about fundamental concepts related to the nature and functioning of physical, chemical, geological and biological systems, the historical development of these concepts and their application in personal, social, economic, technological and environmental situations
  • progress from the consideration of specific data and knowledge to the understanding of models and concepts and the explanation of generalised scientific terms; from the collection and organisation of information to problem-solving and from the use of simple communication skills to those that are more sophisticated
  • develop positive attitudes towards the study of physical, chemical, geological and biological systems, the environment and opinions held by others, recognising the importance of evidence and the use of critical evaluation of differing scientific opinions related to various aspects of science.
