Science and technology

Science and technology is mandatory for all students from Kindergarten to Year 6.

This learning area is concerned with preparing children for life in the 21st Century so that they are able to respond to the growth of scientific and technological knowledge. Science is concerned with finding out about the world in a systematic way.  Technology is about the effective use of resources to meet the needs of our modern society.

In science and technology, students explore the natural and made worlds. They learn how to apply scientific and technological skills, knowledge and understanding across a broad range of contexts.

Science provides a way of inquiring about the world around us. It explores evidence and investigates ways to discover, develop and produce solutions to real world problems. The inquiry and skill-based nature of science opens doors to ideas and discoveries.
