​Years 7–10

Science at Coombabah is delivered through an inquiry focused approach where students have the opportunity to investigate Science's contribution to our culture and society, and its application in our daily lives.

Classes also have an innovative and engaging focus incorporating STEM principles of technology and engineering within their investigations.
