What Science subjects are you studying/have you studied?
This year I’m studying Biology Units 1 & 2. I studied general science up to Year 9 and did Biology and Evolution in Year 10. I also studied Astronomy in Year 8.
What do you like most about studying science?
It’s a branch of knowledge or study dealing with a body of facts or truths systematically arranged and showing the operation of general laws.
When was your interest in science first sparked?
I first became interested in science at primary school. We did an experiment using cornflour: how it is a liquid, but when you hit it, it reacts like a solid. We also did a major experiment in Grade 5 where we collected bacteria from all around the school and put them in Petri dishes to see what area of the school grew the most bacteria.
Do you hope to study science beyond Year 12?
I would love to study Biology at uni after Year 12. I’m looking forward to studying Biology Units 3-4 in 2021.
If you could one day have a career in a branch of science, what would it be?
Something related to biology or astronomy. I always enjoy learning new things in the area of bio. With astronomy, I find it amazing that Space is so big… we know so much and yet so little at the same time. I want to find out more about Space.
