About Science

Did you know that the brain uses over a quarter of the oxygen used by the human body and that a thimbleful of a neutron star would weigh over 100 million tons? Science is full of such fascinating facts, and by studying one of our online science courses you’ll be able to explore any number of enthralling topics.

Science comes from the Latin term ‘scientia’, meaning knowledge. An apt term, science is not only responsible for organising knowledge as mankind makes discoveries, but also building on that knowledge to produce amazing innovations.

Science is one of the most diverse areas of study around, covering everything from Earth sciences and applied science to astronomy, and it is applied to almost every human endeavour, Without science we wouldn’t have medicine, air and space travel, or the building you’re sitting in right now.

Potential science career outcomes include: Chemical Laboratory Technician, Research Laboratory Technician, Microbiologist, Biologist, Chemist, Wildlife Biologist, Geologist, Research Scientist, Statistician, Medical Scientist.
