Science incorporates three cohesive strands of the curriculum, including: understanding, human endeavour and inquiry of skills. The science curriculum supports students learning by developing their scientific knowledge, understanding and skills of a variety of interesting topics, including; Biology, Chemistry, Physic, Earth and Space. Students explore these topics by conducting scientific investigations, experiments and research, which enables students to make informed decisions about local, national and global issues. The science curriculum will help students to develop creative and critical thinking skills, by identify challenging questions and formulating evidence-based conclusions, using scientific methods. The unique nature of science provides students the opportunity to solve problems and convey ideas by proposing a plausible hypothesis, analysing data and information, evaluating evidence and communicating their ideas through a justified conclusion.
