The Vision:

To create a learning environment that will inspire and increase engagement in science fields so our students can become reflective innovators and risk takers who create solutions for real world problems.

  • Develop an interest in science as a means of expanding their curiosity and willingness to explore, ask questions about and speculate on the changing world in which they live                                                                                    
  • Develop an understanding of the vision that science provides of the nature of living things, of the Earth and its place in the cosmos, and of the physical and chemical processes that explain the behaviour of all material things    
  • Develop an understanding of the nature of scientific inquiry and the ability to use a range of scientific inquiry methods, including questioning; planning and conducting experiments and investigations based on ethical principles; collecting and analysing data; evaluating results; and drawing critical, evidence-based conclusions.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              
  • Develop an ability to communicate scientific understanding and findings to a range of audiences, to justify ideas based on evidence, and to evaluate and debate scientific arguments and claims 
  • Develop an ability to solve problems and make informed, evidence-based decisions about current and future applications of science while considering ethical and social implications of decisions
