Online PD for Science in the Classroom

By Request

Discover how to run simple science experiments in the primary classroom using easy to get materials. This is not a PowerPoint presentation or a series of videos; your staff will actively participate in hands-on experiments in real-time with us.

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.

For Proficient Teachers

NB: Due to the new NESA submission requirements & evaluation process, this is not a NESA endorsed program at this stage.
