Year 9 CORE - Science

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr B. Sturman

Y9 Science
Students learn about the importance of evidence in Science to support claims
and findings, and that scientific ideas are challenged and changed when new evidence
comes to light. In Year 9 we cover chemistry, biology, physics and astronomy topics in
order to give students a broad foundation for later studies. There is an emphasis on
practical work to engage students and develop investigative skills. Science encourages a
sense of inquiry and curiosity in students, and develops the understanding to enable
them to make informed decisions about the use of science and technology in society.
