Experiments & Background Theory for Stage 6 Investigating Science

To BE Announced

runs from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm

Explore Investigating Science with a range of experiments and detailed content relating to syllabus outcomes within an interactive and 'collective genius' approach. Facilitator Matt Dodds will get you excited about teaching the highly practical, STEM based, Investigating Science syllabus with confidence.

Join Matt and become clear on the new Investigating Science Syllabus. Matt has put together an exciting program that will take participants through the first Scientific ‘Data Collectors’ such as Tycho Brache and Galileo Galilee to the subsequent ‘Data Miners’ such as Johannes Kepler and Florence Nightingale. We also explore the contribution of the Alchemists, as they focussed on experimentation and the fundamental nature of matter including Phlogiston and the Oxygen theory of Combustion.

The Australian outback is a haven for stargazers and perhaps one of the best places in the world to explore the galaxies in the night sky. Join us for a spectacular stargazing weekend, listen as we decode the night sky or enjoy the full astronomical experience at one of our signature events.
