Scientific Method – Full Day

Scientific Method – Full Day

Learn how to work as a real scientist as we explore fair testing, variables & predictions

Immerse your students in the real scientific process!

Designed for Years 3 to 6 to investigate the scientific method in detail, this full-day science 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 engage in science literacy and form the basis of the entire K – 6 Science & Technology Syllabus. On completing this science workshop your students will be well-equipped 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!

describes how contact and non-contact forces affect an object’s motion

ST2-1WS-S
questions, plans and conducts scientific investigations, collects and summarises data and communicates using scientific representations

ST2-2DP-T
selects and uses materials, tools and equipment to develop solutions for a need or opportunity

ST3-9PW-ST
investigates the effects of increasing or decreasing the strength of a specific contact or non-contact force

ST3-1WS-S
plans and conducts scientific investigations to answer testable questions, and collects and summarises data to communicate conclusions

ST3-2DP-T
plans and uses materials, tools and equipment to develop solutions for a need or opportunity

Ascham Girls School

Fun and interactive, the girls thoroughly enjoyed it. Professional and well informed. We enjoyed this incursion and would definitely consider using this company again.

Workshop Overview

Content

The workshop is built around 3 modules:

  1. Introduction to the scientific method (hands-on stations based on force, energy and chemistry)
  2. The role of a report; guided activities on chemistry
  3. Engineering challenge; time to apply what you know!

Fair testing of variables and clearly communicating results are emphasised throughout each module.
A variety of scientific theories and laws are also presented during the day as a consequence of the activities:

  • Newton’s laws of motion
  • Conservation of energy
  • Gravity
  • Factors determining chemical reaction rates and more…

Students will understand that controlling variables, fair testing and making relevant predictions underpin all science experiments and that knowing how to apply these core scientific principles will be great preparation for entering a high science laboratory.

This highly rewarding day will excite students and invigorate your science curriculum!
