Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Dr D. Stuart

Science is a way of thinking and communicating knowledge about the world around us and the wider universe. Science is able to inform problem solving and decision making in many areas of life.

Junior Science develops an understanding of relationships in the natural, physical world and the skills to explain how and why things happen. These skills include the use of modelling, gathering and interpreting data, using and critiquing evidence to foster the curiosity and the capabilities to engage with science in everyday life.

The course will focus on the Nature of Science strand and cover the four contextual strands:

  • Living World
  • Material World
  • Physical World
  • Planet Earth and Beyond
