You will also investigate water at a local stream in the hills and at sea.

Course components include:

  • Participating in safe, ethical and practical laboratory work, as well as field excursions
  • Learning about applied science and how it can be used to investigate mysteries and our environment
  • Exploring evidence and understanding how we use it to draw conclusions
  • Participating in a day trip to explore a fresh water habitat
