Science is about the origins of earth and the understanding of the complex relationships between all its elements. It's knowledge of plants and animals. It explains how a plane flies or a house is built – it's the foundation of our lives. General science students at Grenfell explore a variety of topics in five main areas of study:

  • Mathematics
  • Physics
  • Chemistry
  • Biology
  • Earth science
