In Science. students investigate the world around them to develop an understanding of the nature of scientific concepts.  Our Science curriculum is based on the teaching and learning units developed by Education Queensland to meet the objectives of the new Australian Science Curriculum.  The science content includes the three strands of Science Understanding, Science Inquiry Skills and Science as a Human Endeavour.  We emphasise active engagement in the learning process.
The topics covered in each year level can be read on the ACARA site at Australian Curriculum : Science F-10

There is a strong science focus at Durack State School with a well-equipped science room that has a wide range of resources.
