Earth & Environmental Science


This ATAR course explores our planet as a dynamic global system involving interactions between the geosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere and the biosphere.

 A multidisciplinary approach, including geological and environmental sciences, encourages students to be curious about the world around them and to apply scientific principles to develop a balanced view of the benefits and challenges presented by the utilisation of resources.

Management of environmental issues is explored, with students having opportunities to discuss issues and draw evidence-based conclusions. Students conduct practical investigations and have the opportunity to participate in field based excursions that encourage them to apply what they have learnt in class to real world situations. This course provides an understanding of the minerals and energy industry and its contribution to Western Australia’s economy.

The Earth and Environmental Science ATAR course has three interrelated strands: Science Inquiry Skills, Science as a Human Endeavour and Science Understanding which build on students’ learning in the Year 7–10 Science curriculum.
