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.


Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) are essential areas of study that foster students’ skills and prepare them to participate in a rapidly changing world and contribute to Australia’s future development and prosperity.

We use an integrated approach to STEM education to provide opportunities for students to develop the knowledge, understanding and problem-solving skills needed to influence scientific and technological developments through innovation. An enhanced understanding of STEM and its real-world applications encourages students to actively contribute to society and to increase their future career opportunities.
