Science is very important and a priority learning area at Athelstone School. Students from Reception to year 7 are provided with a quality science program, and participate in science lessons in a dedicated science room. We are well resourced and have all the necessary equipment needed for the successful delivery of our Science program with a specialist science teacher.
The aims of the Athelstone School Science program are consistent with those of the Australian Curriculum. We believe that science is all about discovery and our hands on teaching model means students learn by being involved in investigations, experiments and practical activities.
Literacy and numeracy is integrated in our Specialist Science program. Reading science text and understanding scientific words, writing summaries of investigations and graphing and measuring results.
Our specialist science program covers the areas Chemical, Physical, Earth and Space and Biological Sciences.
