Investigating science

Two Unit Board Developed Course (BDC) Category A

The new Investigating science course is firmly focused on developing the Working Scientifically skills, as they provide a foundation for students to value investigation, solve problems, develop and communicate evidence- based arguments, and make informed decisions. Students can choose this course as a stand-alone science course or to complement their other science courses.

Students investigate and develop an understanding of scientific concepts, their current and future uses, and their impacts on science and society. The course draws on and promotes interdisciplinary science, by allowing students to investigate a wide range of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) related issues and concepts in depth.

This course is suitable for students who achieve a ROSA grade of C of higher.

Further information is available on the Investigating science syllabus website.
