Earth and Environmental Science


Board Developed Course (ATAR)

Earth and Environmental Science course explores the earth’s renewable and non-renewable resources and environmental issues.

An understanding of the Earth’s resources and how we might live sustainably on the planet is at the core of Earth and Environmental Science.

Students develop and apply their working scientifically skills to build their knowledge. Inquiry questions, practical and secondary-source investigations, and fieldwork are used to acquire a deeper understanding of the Earth’s features, naturally occurring phenomena, and cycles.



Whilst most of the concepts are not overly complex, there is a lot of content to be covered so students must be dedicated to working consistently in class.
