Science staff at Ferny Grove State High firmly believe that science is a way of knowing and that humans are innately curious about their world.
Science as 'a way of knowing’ is used by people to explore and explain their experiences of phenomena of the universe. It is a process for constructing new knowledge. Science is part of the human quest for understanding and wisdom and reflects human wonder about the world. The study of science as 'a way of knowing’ and 'a way of doing’ can help students reach deeper understandings of the world.
It is this underlining passion and love of the sciences that we bring to every lesson; our staff members blend a mixture of experience and youthful energy to produce a highly motivated and successful team driven to make science both interesting and fun.
Students and teachers are supported by two wonderful scientific operations officers who are the backbone of our science department. The wide variety of classroom activities that students experience is a direct result of all staff working as a team.
Science is a part of every facet of our lives and students learn an appreciation of these links by experiencing a variety of visiting university, industry and community organisations throughout the curriculum.
