NorthTec Offers Science Classes for Year 11

High school students seeking help with science subjects can get extra support from special classes run at NorthTec.

The ‘Unlocking Curious Minds’ initiative is part of NorthTec’s focus on delivering the key STEMS subjects – Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Sustainability.

The Applied Sciences department will be offering support for year 11 students on Monday nights after school during term time, from 4 to 5pm, in the Biology Laboratory at Applied Sciences on the Raumanga Campus.

These classes will focus on raising achievement and interest in science. The three main standards at NCEA level 1 will be covered in chemistry, physics and biology, along with Internals.

Classes are open to all year 11 students, with a limit of 15 places. Classes start next term, with the first class on Monday, 20 April.

This is offered at no cost to students, but a copy of the book, “Understanding Science”, will be useful. Many students will already have this book via their school, but NorthTec can arrange for copies to be purchased at the student’s cost if necessary.

For information or to secure a place, email Nigel Studdart at
