Year 10 Investigative Science

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr J. Fraser

This is an optional course for students that have a keen interest in practical, hands-on science. The course will build scientific skills in a range of scenarios. Students will improve their practical, investigative and reporting skills, as well as develop an insight into what scientists actually do in the field and laboratory. Students may be engaged in topics such as rocketry, mouse-trap cars, combustion, microscopy, chemical reactions, and marine biology.

Sitting alongside the compulsory Year 10 general science course, this option will provide students with an excellent knowledge base for Year 11 NCEA sciences.
