John Monash Science School - Science Enrichment Courses


Emerging Sciences Victoria (ESV) is for Year 10 students around Victoria to study Emerging Science subjects online in realtime. Students collaborate online using shared documents, and use video cameras and headsets to interact with classmates and teachers. Through the Emerging Sciences Victoria initiative, these students will be able to choose from four semester-length electives in Astrophysics, Biotechnology, Nanotechnology and Logic to Magic as part of their own courses in 2016 and 2017. They will attend ‘virtual classes’ in real time from their own schools, delivered by JMSS teachers with the support of Monash University experts in science. It is the opportunity of a lifetime.
