The Science key learning area focuses on: science and society, earth and beyond, energy and change, life and living and natural and processed materials.
As they learn about science, students are involved in "working scientifically" to make sense of the phenomena they experience as they investigate, understand and communicate. They develop an appreciation of working scientifically when they learn the concepts of science through engaging in the widest range of active learning experiences. Engaging in science in this way contributes to students' sense of awe and wonder about the beauty and power of the universe.
