The emphasis in science is on learners developing understandings of the physical and biological world in which they live, and an appreciation of the relationships they have with these worlds. To do this, learners need an understanding of the use of scientific processes such as investigating, collecting and interpreting information, and communicating. This, along with the ability to think critically and to measure the impact of science on society, is essential to learners’ success in this area.

Students learn about the sciences involved with the earth in space, energy systems, life systems and matter.
