Level 7 students will learn about the most extreme conditions that life has been seen able to survive, and what constitutes an 'extreme' environment. There will also be an opportunity for students to undertake an independent investigation into the description of an Earth/ Space Science issue in the media and to examine the validity of information available.

Level 8 students have the choice of investigating either an Earth/Space Science based socio-scientific issue or the evidence related to dating geological events.
