NSW K – 10 Science Syllabus Links

Our school science shows and workshops are mapped against the NSW Science K–10 (incorporating Science and Technology K–6) Syllabus to all students in K–6 and Years 7–10. Additionally some outcomes from the NSW K – 6 PDHPE syllabus are also included. All of our science workshops & shows incorporate variable testing at the appropriate student level. Below maps the outcomes against our science shows & workshop incursions for NSW schools
