Science Level 1
The NCEA Level 1 Science course offers a variety of topics from the Living World (Biology), the Material World (Chemistry), the Physical World (Physics) and Planet Earth and Beyond. Particular areas of study may include genetics, forces, energy, and chemical reactivity. It is a good preparation for further study of any of the specialist Sciences and there is also the opportunity to carry out practical investigations and research in the related fields. Learning Science is fundamental to understanding the world in which we live and work, our dependence on Science and Technology demands a high level of Science literacy for all New Zealanders.
