Students learn about the natural and made worlds and how to apply scientific skills, knowledge and understanding across a broad range of contexts.

Science is mandatory for all students from Kindergarten to Year 10 and is articulated through the Science K-10 (Incorporating Science and Technology K-6) Syllabus.

Science provides a way of inquiring about the world around us. It explores evidence and investigates ways to discover, develop and produce solutions to real world problems. The inquiry and skill based nature of science opens doors to ideas and discoveries.

Through a study of science, students learn to apply scientific skills through working scientifically to test, collaborate, investigate, explain and validate information.
