Year 11 and 12 Senior Science Subjects:
Science in Practice
Year 11 Biology Camp
Year 11 Biology students travel to Lady Elliot Island in the Great Barrier Reef to participate in the UQ Coral Watch program, and become familiar with ways in which data about biotic and abiotic factors can be collected and scientific sampling techniques.
Year 10 Introductory Biology Camp
Year 10 students travel to Cooloola National Park and camp at Lake Freshwater for 3 days. Lake Freshwater is the perfect base for the excursion where students are able to complete studies on Succession, Adaptations of Plants on the Frontal Dune, Comparative Studies of Eucalypt and Rainforest Ecosystems, and Investigation of Animals on the Exposed Rocky Shore.
Year 9 Science Field Trip
Year 9 students visit Toohey Forest Environmental Education Centre at Griffith University, Nathan Campus. This excursion provides students with the opportunity to collect biotic and abiotic data, and use this data to compare and evaluate two terrestrial (land based) ecosystems. This data is then used to investigate how ecosystems respond and change as a result of high or low intensity burns.
Year 8 Excellence in Science Field Trip
Students in the Year 8 Excellence in Science Program undertake a 12-week 'Impact Centre' program, 'Marine Zone'. During this time, they extend their understanding of the purpose and process of scientific inquiry and mathematical investigation as they examine the ecology of the Moreton Bay catchment area. This program includes a field trip on-board the boat, 'Inspiration', with 'Moreton Bay Environmental Education Centre'.
Year 7 Excellence in Science Field Trip
Students in the Year 7 Excellence in Science Program undertake a full day of hands-on, interactive Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) workshops at QUT Gardens Point campus.
Students have the opportunity to participate in the:
Big Science Competition
- National Youth Science Forum
- Queensland Minerals and Energy Academy (QMEA) Partner School opportunities for students
- QUT High School Research Internships Program
- QUT Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Camp
- QUT Power of Engineering Day Tour
- STEM Girl Power camp
- STEM high achievers program
- World Science Festival Brisbane
