Science

 
Humans are naturally very curious about
their world. Science provides a way of  answering interesting and important questions about the biological, physical and technological world. The knowledge and skills provided by science allows students to make valuable contributions to society enabling them to identify questions and draw evidence-based conclusions.
 
People who understand the scientific process are more likely to make thoughtful and critical decisions about issues which may influence their own lifestyle, health and environment.
 
At Noosa District State High School, students acquire knowledge and develop an understanding and appreciation of science via inquiry-based science. Our programs incorporate many community links.
 
Students are taught science through investigating. Students pose questions, plan and conduct investigations. Students analyse and evaluate data and use this as evidence to justify conclusions.
 
The Science Faculty at Noosa District State High School incorporates Science, Marine Science and Agricultural Science Strands.
 
In Junior Secondary students study Science for 2 semesters in Year 9. This course provides opportunities for students to develop an understanding of important science concepts and processes, the practices used to develop scientistic knowledge of sciences contributions to our culture and society and it's application in our lives.
