09 Science 1

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Nicole Hook.

The general subject of Science is compulsory for Year 9 and 10 students. It gives students a taste of Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Earth & Space Science.

In Biology students study ecology (animal and plant adaptations), life processes, cells and work with microscopes. 

Chemistry introduces them to atoms, particles (different types and how they interact), the Periodic Table and gets them doing hands-on experiments to test chemical reactions. 

In Physics they start to learn about energy and the behaviour of waves. 

A small unit on Astronomy is also done at the end of the year.
