In the Research Project students choose a research topic that is based on an area of interest, and one or more capabilities (Literacy, Numeracy, Information and Communication Technology Capability, Critical and Creative Thinking, Personal and Social Capability, Ethical Understanding and Intercultural Understanding). Students use the research framework as a guide to developing their research and applying knowledge andskills specific to their research topic. They create an outcome, evaluate the research processes used and reflect on the relevance of the chosen capability (or capabilities) to themselves and their research project.
SCIENTIFIC STUDIES/HEALTH SCIENCE
Students develop their knowledge of scientific principles and concepts, the ability to use that knowledge to identify questions, issues, opportunities, and challenges, and the capacity to acquire new knowledge through their own investigations. There are opportunities to learn from professionals working in the Health Science field.
