The Australian Academy of Science’s two school education programs, Science by Doing and Primary Connections, have launched new interactive resources aimed at supporting teachers to lead inquiry-based science education in the classroom.
Three new Primary Connections units cover science material suitable from foundation to Year 4 and include a free downloadable PDF, assessment rubrics and new and improved introductory sections.
Three new interactive teaching resources, including two which are already available for purchase on the Primary Connections website, are designed to be used on interactive whiteboards or computers.
More information about the new units, professional development and other resources is available at the Primary Connections website.
Science by Doing is a comprehensive online science program for Years 7 to 10 available free to all Australian students and teachers and supported by award winning professional learning modules and a research based professional learning approach.
The program provides a practical way of implementing the Australian Curriculum: Science.
Science by Doing recently launched a number of new curriculum resources and has begun its program of professional development. For more information visit the Science by Doing website.
