Year 10 SMART Program

What is the Science, Mathematics And Related Technologies (SMART) Program

The SMART selective program open to all students in the ACT. It is designed for students who show interest and aptitude or potential in Science, Mathematics and Related Technologies and who are prepared and keen to develop effective and responsible learning skills in preparation for Years 11 and 12, post-secondary studies and other post-school options.

The enrolment intake for the program includes selected Year 10 students. These selected students will have the opportunity to optimise the benefits of attending Gungahlin College by participating in a comprehensive preparation program and commencing some Year 11 subjects while in Year 10.

The SMART program and learning environment at Gungahlin will ensure that students acquire skills in

  • Problem solving
  • Communicating
  • Using technology
  • Working collaboratively in teams
  • Making connections between theory and 'real-world' applications
  • Developing laboratory skills

It is expected that students will leverage off their opportunity to participate in the SMART program by continuing at the College in Years 11 and 12.
