This unit looks at science beyond the classroom. Students will build on knowledge obtained in Core Science and will be provided with the opportunity to explore areas of scientific interest.
The key areas that students may be involved in are:
- Planning, conducting and evaluating open ended investigations in a range of topics related to the key areas of the science curriculum
- Being involved in a range of scientific activities that challenge students understanding and application of skills
Students are encouraged to improve their scientific understanding and skills by interacting with a variety of learning experiences that includes an emphasis on laboratory work and safety, thus enhancing their science inquiry skills. The nature, development, use and influence of science are explored.
Students record and communicate their progress using a variety of techniques such as workbook entries, written scientific reports, posters, models and multimedia presentations.
