Science is a way of thinking and communicating knowledge about the world around us and the wider universe. 

Year 10 Science continues to develop the skills that were introduced in Year 9 that foster curiosity and an understanding of relationships in the natural, physical world. The focus is on the Nature of Science strand, using contexts from everyday life to encourage all students to become scientifically literate problem-solvers.

Topics may explore Geology, Body Systems, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Reproduction, Electricity. Contexts may include pandemics, caving, survival, telecommunication, freshwater ecology, electric vehicles, navigation, mountain biking and sport science.
