The Science program at Emerson is designed to encourage students’ natural curiosity, through hands on experiments and activities. Students will work through the scientific method, this includes questioning, predicting, observing, recording results and making conclusions. This process helps students to think about their prior knowledge before taking part in the activity and then shows the students the cause and effect in a real life setting.
Within this program students also have the opportunity to take part in programs such as Clean Up Australia Day and National Tree Day. These programs help foster a sense of responsibility, gives students the chance to care for their environment and gives them awareness of their impact on the environment.
Of course the most important thing is for students to have fun whilst learning!
