SCIENCE SHOWS, EVENTS & WORKSHOPS

Scientific Method – Short Course

Scientific Method – Short Course

Immerse your students in the real scientific process!

Designed for Years 3 & 6 to investigate the scientific method in detail, this workshop introduces and expands a variety of core scientific principles:

  • forming a hypothesis
  • identifying variables
  • fair testing
  • experimental design and reporting
  • critical thinking and problem solving

These 5 elements are essential for students to plan and undertake their own first-hand investigations as well as evaluate their results correctly, regardless of what unit of work they are studying!

Use this workshop to help students understand the core components of scientific literacy as well as kick-off their entry into high school science.

Available as a primary school science incursion within Australia or as a LIVE video conference to any school around the globe!
