Teacher Professional Learning – One Hour

Primary Teacher PD made fun

You don’t have to ‘squeeze science in’ – make science part of every lesson, even art and craft! This hands-on workshop is designed for teachers interested in integrating creative science experiments into the Australian science curriculum. We emphasise cost-effective experiments that have been shown to have a real impact on student’s understanding of basic scientific processes.

Science Technology Engineering Mathematics (STEM) is a major focus for Local, State & Federal governments. Schools form a major part of this renewed push and need to be able to adapt and run quality science lessons that are relevant to students.


What happens during the hour?

We work through simple experiments based on light, sound, energy, movement and more. We want you and your teachers to be comfortable with getting simple ingredients from local supermarkets and turning them into engaging and worthwhile classroom experiments. This is not a PowerPoint presentation; it’s a whole bunch of experiments that your staff actively participate in and have been classroom-tested and 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.

Participation is actively encouraged and teachers will also become aware of the growing list of further lesson plan ideas through our >100 free science experiments and our active education blog series.

We find that schools find this easy to schedule this event as part of a staff meeting. This can also be run via video conference where we will ask you to bring some simple materials along to participate in the science experiments.
