Why study Science?
Through observation and experiment, Science students develop an understanding of the structure and behaviour of the physical and natural world based upon current scientific theories. Students will learn how to generate ideas, gather evidence, investigate and model findings. They are able to use their scientific knowledge and skills to solve problems that would benefit society and their community, and to make informed decisions about the
communication and implications of science relating to their own lives and the sustainability of the environment.
