Redcliffe Primary School is committed to developing our student’s passion and interest in Science. We believe science is all about discovery and nurturing the natural curiosity that students have about the world around them. The Redcliffe Science program is aligned to the Western Australian Curriculum with student learning covering three strands:
Science Understandings: Biological, Chemical, Earth and Space and Physical sciences.
Science as a Human Endeavour: Science in our everyday lives, how Science affects decision making in the community, historical events and famous scientists.
Science Inquiry Skills: Planning and conducting fair tests, carrying out measurements, observations and communicating results.
The Primary Connections resource is the main curriculum model used for all science lessons. This resource combines hands-on investigations, evidence-based reasoning and collaborative group work to build the skills necessary to thrive in the 21st century.
At Redcliffe Primary School we believe engaging in STEM education allows students to explore and use their problem solving and inquiry skills to solve real world problems. Using the knowledge and skills in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) offers students a platform to learn how to collaborate, communicate, think creatively and critically, and use their imagination.
