Students design and conduct geological investigations and gather evidence from fieldwork, experiments, and research. They have the opportunity to engage with the work of practising geologists and join and/or initiate debates about how geology impacts on our own lives, society, and the environment.
Students acquire knowledge of geological principals and concepts, and use that knowledge to identify questions, issues, opportunities, and challenges.
