Investigating science

The investigating science course is multidisciplinary and develops students' abilities to engage with scientific processes to investigate personal, community and global scientific issues.

Investigating science is designed to be aimed at all students. The course promotes active inquiry and evidence based investigations. It provides opportunities for problem solving and making informed scientific decisions. Students can engage in examples and situations that relate to biology, chemistry, earth sciences and physics.
