Did you know that a rocket launches when the force of thrust pushing it upwards is greater than the force of gravity pulling it towards the centre of the Earth?
 
There's a number of forces on teachers in primary school too (not just gravity). This event will show you how the science syllabus can make it easier to harness those forces for the benefit of your students and make your classroom a more productive space.   Be a force for quality science inquiry in your classroom!

This program aims to support teachers with the science they need to know & how those concepts build over time. It allows them to realise what can be left out. Easy to do science experiments for each of the strands will provide teachers with ideas on how to use everyday materials & objects to do science in a classroom.

This program is  for both experienced and less-experienced primary (science) teachers alike. The program will offer interactive seminars and hands on workshops from experienced, practising STANSW members who have run previous professional learning workshops for K-6 colleagues. Join with like-minded Primary teachers for up to three twilight sessions of discussion, networking and sharing.

Teaching K-6 Science and Technology for the new syllabus

Introduction:

The implementation of a new Science & Technology syllabus introduces an opportunity to develop a program to support teachers through the changes as well as strengthening understanding of science.

The main goal of the program is to support teachers with the science they need to know & how those concepts build over time. It allows them to realise what can be left out. Easy to do science experiments for each of the strands will provide teachers with ideas on how to use everyday materials & objects to do science in a classroom.

Primary teachers will experience three workshops which focus on language, conceptual development, scientific techniques & language of science in the primary context.

Participants will need to bring laptops.

 

 




Completing the Teaching & Inspiring K-6 workshops will contribute 6 hours of NESA Registered PD addressing standards 6.2.2, 6.42, and 7.4.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers
towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
