Pete Smith - Engaging in Science
Please don't be embarrassed if you think there are only four strands in the science curriculum, you'd not be the only one! The 5th, and arguably the most important is often overlooked: The Nature of Science.
The Nature of Science was an important focus of the day with Pete Smith, Education Manager of the National Science Roadshow and Manager of the Sir Paul Callaghan Science Academy.
Pete left attendees, from early childhood through to intermediate, with plenty of practical ways they could weave science throughout the curriculum, developing scientific curiosity using everyday objects.
