Science helps us to understand the world around us: developing our international mindedness and giving us the opportunity to better understand our community, and environment. Throughout the course every effort will be made to show how Science connects to other areas of study.

The following chart is an outline of the course.  The statement of inquiry for each unit is designed to challenge the students to think deeply about the topic and it's links to the lives they live.
