Science Pathway


Understanding about science

Students will learn about science as a knowledge system: the features of scientific knowledge, the processes by which it is developed, and the ways in which the work of scientists interacts with society.

Investigating in science

Students will carry out science investigations using a variety of approaches: classifying and identifying, pattern seeking, exploring, investigating models, fair testing, making things, or developing systems.

Communicating in science

Students will develop knowledge of the vocabulary, numeric and symbolic systems, and conventions of science, and use this knowledge to communicate about their own and others’ ideas.

Participating and contributing

Students will bring a scientific perspective to actions and decisions as appropriate.

Science Capabilities

To gather and interpret information, use evidence to support ideas, critique evidence, make meaning of scientific representations and engage with science.

Pathways this course contributes towards

This is a highly recommended course for many tertiary degrees. Please explore the Biology, Chemistry and Physics pages.

Other essential information

Entry to the Level One Science internal course is at the discretion of the Leader of Learning.

Science has  given me a broad idea of what I enjoy learning about and what science subjects I might like to continue next year. I have enjoyed the biology and chemistry topics, the skills of which I have learnt can be applied to several future pathways I may want to explore.
