Working Scientifically & Technologically

This course is aimed at helping primary school teachers with Working Scientifically and Technologically. Participants will be learning, performing and assessing a variety of achievable and innovative K-6 science experiments in a primary school setting. We will be examining various methods of science pedagogy to facilitate student acquisition of experimental skills. We will also be exploring the nature of the NSW Science & Technology K–6 Syllabus, scientific literacy, resources and risk assessment. In addition, Working Technologically and the Technology sub-strands will be unpacked and a variety of opportunities for cross-curricular integration with Science, the new History and Geography syllabuses and other subjects will be discussed.
This course is most appropriate for a region, cluster or community of schools. Please contact us and fill out the expression of interest form if your organisation is interested in arranging or hosting.
