​The science key learning area has three interrelated strands: science understanding, science as a human endeavour and science inquiry skills.

Together, the three strands of the science curriculum provide students with understanding, knowledge and skills through which they can develop a scientific view of the world. Students are challenged to explore science, its concepts, nature and uses through clearly described inquiry processes.

The science understanding strand comprises four sub-strands: biological sciences, chemical sciences, earth and space sciences and physical sciences.
