Science is a dynamic, collaborative and creative human endeavour developing from our desire to make sense of our world by exploring the unknown, investigating universal mysteries, making predictions and solving problems.

Practical investigations are an integral part of learning Science at Cranbourne West Secondary College. The hands-on experience students gain by testing and observing concepts in action allow for a deeper understanding of each topic. It also allows the opportunity for problem-solving and collaborative learning.
