We believe that science at Colville generates excitement and curiosity about the world and above all respect for the environment and all living things.
The scientific method enables those involved to learn through the process of trial and error and improvement. Through this method, each learner develops their own ‘Science Capital’ and this helps them to develop a greater understanding of the world around them. We recognise that every member of society is a ‘scientist’ and we all need a vast understanding of this subject to survive in the modern world.
