In the Science Learning Area, students learn to investigate, understand and communicate about the physical, geological and technological world and, in the process, appreciate the interactions that support life on our planet. Science helps students to become critical thinkers by encouraging them to use evidence to evaluate what they will see and what they hear.

Science provides a way of answering interesting and important questions about the biological, physical and technological world. It is the knowledge produced through scientific endeavour that proves to be a reliable basis for action in our personal, social and economic lives.

Science is a dynamic, collaborative and creative human endeavour arising from our desire to make sense of our world through exploring the unknown, investigating universal mysteries, making predictions and solving problems.
