Energy - the ability to cause a change - is fundamental to all life on Earth. This course will start with an overview of how energy and matter are transferred around our planet, the oceans and the atmosphere. How does this interact with life on Earth?

This is a multi-level year-long science course for 2021, and the exact content will be decided based on the numbers, levels and interests of the students that sign up. (please see the overview https://lms.aotawhiti.school.nz/?q=node/386046 ) At Level 1 there are a number of 4 credit internal assessments available. Students working towards Level 2 or 3 have a mixture of internal and external assessment options.

A camp is being planned to Peel Forest to support learning content from this course. Attendance of the camp is NOT compulsory, but will be beneficial to learning.
