Physical Science

Physical Science takes the disciplines of chemistry and physics and uses them to improve our lives, while still caring for our environment. It is an ideal subject for students to constantly ask ‘what if?’ and who enjoy mathematical challenges. It is also a subject for those who seek to move into careers such as Engineering, Medicine and Health sciences and Space exploration.

The students combine theory with practical work and film study, enjoying the movie ‘The Martian’ as an example. Waterfall College was privileged to enjoy a visit from Dr Adriana Marais, candidate for the Mars One Project, which enthralled the Physical Sciences students. These experiences all add depth to the subject.
