Stage 2 Earth and Environmental Science

Stage 2 Earth and Environmental Science will be taught for the first time in 2018.

Stage 2 Earth and Environmental Science is a 20-credit subject at Stage 2.

Students consider how human beings use the Earth's resources and the impact of human activities on the environment. They assess the evidence that informs public debate on social and environmental issues such as use of the Earth's resources, and climate change. They conduct a detailed investigation into an Earth or environmental initiative or issue and report their findings in terms of the interactions of two or more of the Earth's systems.

Using an inquiry approach to learning through observation, speculation, prediction, experimentation, analysis, evaluation, and communication, students develop science inquiry skills and reinforce their understanding of science as a human endeavour.
