A series of two afternoon sessions aimed at providing teachers with ideas and information about assisting students to carry out sustainability related science inquiries/research investigations that address the strands of the Australian Curriculum Science and the Sustainability general capability. Links to the literacy and numeracy continua will also be considered.

In between the two sessions you and your students will be asked to consider questions that students could investigate and methods that they could use.

Science inquiries provide an opportunity for differentiated learning, and more able students could be encouraged to enter their final report in one of the related science competitions.
