Science

Science is a multidisciplinary subject, which gives students an opportunity to relate scientific concepts and theories to real life experiences. Furthermore learners are exposed to a vast array of systematic and carefully controlled experiments that are linked to the theoretical understanding of a specific topic. 

Science is divided into two main areas, namely lower school and upper school:

Lower school Science (Year 7-10) includes the following disciplines: 

•    Earth and Space Science
•    Physical Science
•    Chemical Science 
•    Biological Science

Upper school Science (Year 11-12) includes the following areas

•    Integrated Science
•    Physics
•    Chemistry
•    Human Biology

The subject areas are catered for each student’s future career pathway such as University, TAFE, VET, etc. 

Science Understanding (SU): Which focuses on concepts and terminologies associated with a particular topic.

Science Inquiry Skills (SIS): Which emphasises on skills essential for working in a scientific laboratory.

Science as a Human Endeavour (SHE): Which encompasses the use of Science in the application of technology and innovation.

At Karratha Senior High School, students are taught about the important scientific contributions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander inhabitants as a means to embrace, acknowledge and create a sense of solidarity within indigenous communities in the Pilbara region. Furthermore, this is also reinforced as part of the cross-curricular priority for Science learning.
