This strand focuses on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) investigation skills, practical applications of science, connections between science and various careers, and contributions to the development of science from people with diverse lived experiences. The learning related to this strand takes place in the context of learning in the Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Earth and Space Science strands.
apply scientific processes and an engineering design process in their investigations to develop a conceptual understanding of the science they are learning, and apply coding skills to model scientific concepts and relationships
analyse how scientific concepts and processes can be applied in practical ways to address real-world issues and in various careers, and describe contributions to science from people with diverse lived experiences
In this strand, students integrate learning from Strand A as they investigate concepts, develop and apply skills, and make meaningful connections to their lives, their communities, and the environment.
assess impacts of climate change on ecosystem sustainability and on various communities, and describe ways to mitigate these impacts
demonstrate an understanding of the dynamic and interconnected nature of ecosystems, including how matter cycles and energy flows through ecosystems
