Welcome To Emerging Sciences Victoria

Emerging Sciences Victoria (ESV) makes it possible for Year 9 and 10 students in Victoria to access specialised STEM subjects through a virtual classroom.


Acknowledgement of Country

ESV would like to acknowledge the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the land on which we meet, the Wurunjeri and Boonwurrung people, among the very first scientists and engineers to tread and work on Australian soil, and pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.

Frontiers of Physics

In Frontiers of Physics, students journey through the Universe where they explore the phenomenon of black holes, quasars, dark matter and dark energy. We discuss how stars, the solar system and other objects are formed and link this to the likelihood of life existing on these objects.

The Nature and Beauty of Mathematics

In this course, students will explore the world of fractals, multiple dimensions, irrational numbers and their relationship with the natural world, the mathematics of paper folding and topology, the nature of mathematics itself, as well as the complexities of infinity.

Big Ideas in Neuroscience will tackle what we already know about the brain and how cutting edge technologies are changing this, using a mix of videos, discussion, practical activities, guest speakers, group and individual work.

view course


Bioinformatics explores how we use technology to understand DNA and genetic codes. Students will examine the structure and function of the cell, DNA and proteins, the development and uses of genetic technology.

Climate Change - A Wicked Problem

How do we solve a problem like climate change? And how do we provide warning for people that live and work in earthquake and volcanic areas of our planet? These are just two wicked problems that we face in the 21st Century.

Nanotechnology is the study of the world at a scale that is larger than the atom but smaller than a bacteria. In this course, students will engage in a range of activities to gain an understanding of the nano-scale and establish the difference between bulk properties and nano scale properties.

Medical Physics

Have you ever wondered how medical diagnostic equipment work? Why is an MRI preferred over an X-ray in the diagnosis of knee injuries? Why are pregnant women advised against having X-rays? Why does the heartbeat result in spikes on a monitor? These are some of the questions that are explored in the medical physics course.

Indigenous Science

Have you ever wondered how Australia’s first people incorporated science and technology into their culture? In this course we will explore how the traditions, culture and stories of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people embedded within them a deep understanding of how the world around them worked.
