Science is mandatory for all students from Year 7 to Year 10.
Science 7-10 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. Science emphasises the skills for working scientifically, as well as critical and creative thinking to address scientific issues.
Here at Lake Munmorah High School, our Science Faculty is always striving to find new and exciting ways to educate and engage our students. Even though Science is a mandatory subject in years 7-10, it doesn't mean that we can't make it fun!
STEM (Science, technology, engineering and maths) is the pathway of the future, and here in the Science Faculty, we hope to encourage all students towards this path.
Our varied curriculum includes opportunities such as excursions, science celebration nights, week long activities surrounding science week, practical opportunities in the laboratory, exciting demonstrations (often explosive!), and the chance to experience new technologies such as droids and drones. For more information on some of these past activities, please click on the ‘celebrations' tab.
In 2019 we are running 5 Science subjects. These are:
Biology – the study of life
Chemistry – the study of atoms and their interactions
Physics – the study of movement
Earth and Environmental Science
If you are interested in any of these subjects in 2020 and would like to know more, talk to your Science teacher about it, or attend the subject information night which will be held later in the year.
