Science is taught across all year levels at The Gap State High School.  It covers a wide range of topics and subjects and includes strands of Biology, Physics, Chemistry and Earth Sciences.  The discipline concerns itself with the study of phenomena.  It serves to explain and understand the living and physical environments and interactions of the world through a number of different subjects.  Science shows us how to answer questions of our biological, physical and technological contexts.

By studying Science students will develop

  • an appreciation of their surroundings in the physical world
  • confidence in applying investigative skills in scientific situations
  • problem solving and thinking skills to help understand scientific phenomena and world interactions

It is a compulsory subject in Years 7-9 and students have the opportunity to apply for a specialised STEM class in Years 9 and 10.  Senior Science subjects include Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Earth and Environmental Science and Science in Practice.

Further information regarding Science subjects and their topics can be found in the relevant Curriculum Handbooks.
