Children and young people participating in the experiences and outcomes in the sciences will develop a curiosity and understanding of their environment and their place in the living, material and physical world, demonstrate a secure knowledge and understanding of the big ideas and concepts of the sciences, develop skills for learning, life and work, develop skills of scientific inquiry and investigation using practical techniques and develop skills in the accurate use of scientific language, formulae and equations. Students will recognise the role of creativity and inventiveness in the development of the sciences, apply safety measures and take necessary actions to control risk and hazards, recognise the impact the sciences make on their lives, the lives of others, the environment and on society, develop an understanding of the Earth’s resources and the need for responsible use of them, express opinions and make decisions on social, moral, ethical, economic and environmental issues based upon sound understanding, develop as scientifically literate citizens with a lifelong interest in the sciences and establish the foundation for more advanced learning and, for some, future careers in the sciences and the technologies. The Science faculty involves Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
