Welcome to Science

 Science education contributes to the growth and development of all students, as individuals, to become responsible and informed members of society, and productive contributors to New Zealand's economy and future.

Science is a compulsory subject at Nelson College from Years 9 to 11. The Year 9 and 10 courses introduce students to the main areas of Science: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Earth Science and Astronomy. Students engage in a range of practical work and learn how to plan, carry out and report on scientific investigations.
