In Science courses at Canberra College, students are able to experience the diversity of scientific discoveries in Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Accredited Science. The Sciences embrace the concept that we know, understand and learn about the world through an interactive process we call the scientific method. In the Biology, Chemistry and Physics courses the International Baccalaureate learner profile and content have been incorporated. Our students strive to be thinkers, open minded and reflective in their studies, and to celebrate diversity and pursue excellence. Many students will be given the opportunity to complete an independent project within each of the sciences. This may involve collaboration with CSIRO in a Silver crest program or a Mentor program where they will be matched with a scientist and complete independent work under the supervision and within the field of work of the scientist. The Mentor program provides a pathway for students in the ACE program at Melrose High School so they can continue with more mentor projects or extend one already complete. All students may engage in a mentors program in Year 12. All students are encouraged to embrace the opportunities to participate in the ANU Secondary College programs in science, the Pre Med program, become QUESTACON Explainers, join the National Youth Forum, go to the Youth ANZAAS and participate in the many Science competitions and challenges that are offered over the two years.
The Information Technology course offers students the opportunity to develop their skills in Programming, Networking and Multi Media. Students are encouraged to pursue excellence in their chosen specialty and to demonstrate their skills in open forums, challenges and competitions. In all streams students are encouraged to embrace the opportunity to obtain a Certificate II in Information Technology. Students are encouraged to work in teams on projects and to embrace the diversity of opinion and value the contribution of colleagues. In the units that they study students will gain a deeper understanding of the processes and knowledge required to be competent in Information Technology, and so value the learning that is required.
