Year 9 Science

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs E. Martin.

All Year 9 students work in specialised science laboratories meeting learning experiences that are grouped into units. The units put new science concepts into contexts familiar to students. Examples of contexts are Te Awa Kairangi where we study the ecosystems and water quality of the Hutt River, and Sustaining life where we explore how our planet allows life to occur, and why we haven't been able to find life anywhere else in our universe. Students will enjoy experimenting with chemicals, collecting data in investigations and developing the skills to manipulate lab equipment. Students are encouraged to bring laptops or tablets, to class as they will be used for class work, use of web based resources, research, creating presentations and more.
