Our Science and Technology program aims to develop students’ competence, confidence and responsibility in their interactions with Science and Technology leading to:
- An enriched view of themselves, society, the environment and the future
- Enthusiasm for further learning in Science and Technology to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for the natural and made environments
- The ability to apply skills, knowledge, understanding and processes when working scientifically and technologically to solve problems and produce innovative solutions
Students are encouraged to appreciate science as an essential and relevant part of their lives, now and in the future. Science and Technology inspires a student’s sense of wonder and curiosity about the world. It gives them knowledge and skills in scientific investigation and inquiry, and designing and applying technologies.
In Science and Technology, our students pose questions, test ideas, and develop, evaluate and communicate findings based on evidence. They develop an understanding of the relationships between Science and Technology and the significance of their contribution to society.
