Science and technology

Science and technology is mandatory for all students from Kindergarten to Year 6.

In science and technology, students explore the natural and made worlds. They learn how to apply scientific and technological skills, knowledge and understanding across a broad range of contexts.

Science provides a way of inquiring about the world around us. It explores evidence and investigates ways to discover, develop and produce solutions to real world problems. The inquiry and skill-based nature of science opens doors to ideas and discoveries.

Fort Street has dedicated STEAM spaces for students to enjoy hands-on Science lessons, with opportunities for researching, designing, creating and testing ideas.

The school is well-resourced with technology, including laptops and iPads. Class sets of Beebots, Spheros and Lego Mindstorms are used to develop early coding skills.
