Online PD for Science in the Classroom (Teacher)
Discover how to run simple science experiments in the primary classroom using easy to get materials.
Learn how to identify variables in a variety of hands-on simple experiments that you can use straight away in your classroom. You will actively participate in hands-on experiments in real-time with us, this is not a PowerPoint presentation or a series of videos.
During this session, your teachers will learn about how to turn materials available in the local supermarket into engaging and worthwhile classroom experiments. These experiments have been classroom-tested and have shown to be highly effective in increasing student understanding. All materials presented have direct syllabus links to both the ACARA and NSW K to 10 Science Syllabus.
