We use the products of the many branches of Science every day. Science and the skills developed in Science subjects are essential if we are to gain an understanding of the way the world works. It helps people develop the skills needed to think critically, ask questions, make evidence based explanations, work together and also work independently.

The courses offered within the Sciences Learning area provide a great variety in the choice of subjects offered and a wide range of opportunities for further study.

Science allows the harnessing of creative talents and personal intelligences to create new knowledge to improve society. Scientists get to create, develop and contribute new ideas and products. As a scientist, you really can ‘make a difference’.
