Course Description

Contact Person: L. MacGilloway

This course aims to give students some science knowledge in real-life contexts to help them understand the world around them. It covers a wide range of science topics such as microbes and how we use them, why we get different astronomical cycles and what is causing extreme earth events. We may look at how the the science of waves affects us in everyday life, such as our hearing and sight, or why we use certain metals in different real-life situations. Reminder: this course does not lead to Year 12 Science.
