Both courses are endorsed by NESA for professional development towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW. The specific scope of endorsement is detailed in the information for each workshop.

Primary Science Hands on Forensic Activity

We use one of Scienza Viva's classroom activities, the Forensic Flying Squad, as a starting point and break it up, showing how it can be used to support outcomes in the Science and Technology syllabus. For more details, click here.

Primary Science Hands on Re-use, Recycle, Upcycle for K-6

In this course for K-6 teachers, the presenter will facilitate teachers to develop and use a variety of appropriate resources and activities in their classrooms. Specifically, we use materials that would otherwise be discarded to create working models or other items that illustrate scientific principles. For more details, click here.

Next Session Reuse, Recycle and Upcycle and Behind the Scenes of the Forensic flying Squad Workshops for Mt Austin Public School in Wagga Wagga on Monday 17th July.

These courses are suitable for both newly qualified teachers and Proficient Teachers who are looking for NESA endorsed courses.
