Stage 5

Stage 5: Yr 10

The Stage 5 Science course also has a focus on cross curriculum priorities to enable students to develop an understanding about the contemporary issues they face. These include Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures, Australia’s engagement with Asia, and Sustainability.

General Capabilities developed include: Critical and creative thinking, ethical understanding, information and communication, technology, intercultural understanding, literacy, numeracy, and personal and social capability.

The courses are rigorous and designed to prepare students for a future in STEM learning and enterprises. The depth studies within these exciting, revitalised courses provide opportunities for students to consolidate their learning, develop competence and express their creativity. The wide range of “Hands-On” activities allow students to discover, experience and learn through action.  Students complete a Student Research Project in the Year 10 course where they independently carry out a scientific investigation to demonstrate the extent to which they have developed skills in applying scientific methods through a STEM Project.
