Science and technology

Science and technology is mandatory for all students from Kindergarten to Year 6.

In science and technology, students explore the natural and made worlds. They learn how to apply scientific and technological skills, knowledge and understanding across a broad range of contexts.

Science provides a way of inquiring about the world around us. It explores evidence and investigates ways to discover, develop and produce solutions to real world problems. The inquiry and skill-based nature of science opens doors to ideas and discoveries.


Our Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) programs inspire creativity and develop critical inquiry approaches for learning and thinking. STEM programs are essential areas of study that foster students’ skills and prepare them to participate in a rapidly changing world. When students learn within the context of authentic projects, they can see clear connections between syllabus outcomes and real-world applications. Through STEM, students apply skills, knowledge and understanding the way they would be applied in the workforce and in their daily lives.

In 2023 we are running a specialist STEM program for all students in K-6.
