Science involves people investigating the living, physical, material and technological parts of their environment and making sense of them in logical and creative ways. Using systematic and creative processes of investigation, scientists produce a constantly changing body of knowledge and make an important contribution to shaping our world.
The Year 11 Science course provides students with a snap shot of the three areas of Science they could study in Year 12.
