Science provides a way of answering interesting and important questions about the biological, physical and technological world.
The knowledge it produces has proved to be a reliable basis for action in our personal, social and economic lives. Science arises from our desire to make sense of our world through exploring the unknown, investigating universal mysteries, making predictions and solving problems.
It aims to understand a large number of observations in terms of a much smaller number of broad principles. Science knowledge is revised, refined and extended as new evidence arises. Studying science provides students with a suite of skills and understandings that are valuable to a wide range of further study pathways and careers.
