Students of the HSC Science Extension course will have the opportunity to work alongside the best researchers and scientists, partner with universities and publish their own research.
Partnerships currently are being developed between groups of schools and scientific research hubs to facilitate students’ access to researchers and data.
The new HSC Science Extension course can be studied in addition to Chemistry, Biology, Earth and Environmental Science, Physics and the new Investigating Science course.
Updated rules will allow students to study four science courses, including the new Science Extension course.
The final Science Extension syllabus will be released in late 2017.
