Science and Technology

Science and Technology programmes are developed in each grade. They reflect the philosophy of the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) Science and Technology Syllabus document.

A student’s sense of wonder and curiosity about the natural and made world is fostered through actively engaging in the processes of Working Scientifically and Working Technologically. Through questioning and seeking solutions to problems, students develop an understanding of the relationships between science and technology, and the significance of their contribution to and influence on society.

Students are provided with opportunities to think and act critically and creatively based on evidence and reason, and to participate responsibly in developing innovative working solutions and ideas in response to posed questions or problems.

Through engaging in Science and Technology learning, students will begin to develop the capabilities needed to become more scientifically and technologically literate citizens.
