Part of the series Science: A STEM Approach.
Prepare your students for the roles of the future! Minds will be challenged and imaginations unleashed as students develop skills such as innovation, creativity, reasoning and problem-solving; and technical science skills such as questioning, observing, systematic experimentation, and analysis and interpretation of data.
Feel confident delivering a comprehensive and contemporary science program, and ease your way into STEM projects with Science: A STEM approach.
Each book in this series features:
- four units with four STEM projects, organised by sub-strand - Biological sciences, Chemical sciences, Earth and space sciences and Physical sciences
- easy-to-follow lesson plan format, with term overview at the start of each unit
- ideas for incorporating technology in the classroom
- background information for the teacher
- resource sheets, if required
- assessment sheets provided for science knowledge
- STEM project for the remainder of the term (2-4 weeks)
Each STEM project includes:
- a design brief
- STEM curriculum links
- alternative project ideas
- a group rubric
- resource sheets, if required

Science as a Human Endeavour
- Science involves making predictions and describing patterns and relationships (ACSHE061)
- Science knowledge helps people to understand the effect of their actions (ACSHE062)
Science Inquiry Skills
- With guidance, identify questions in familiar contexts that can be investigated scientifically and make predictions based on prior knowledge (ACSIS064)
- With guidance, plan and conduct scientific investigations to find answers to questions, considering the safe use of appropriate materials and equipment (ACSIS065)
- Consider the elements of fair tests and use formal measurements and digital technologies as appropriate, to make and record observations accurately (ACSIS066)
- Use a range of methods including tables and simple column graphs to represent data and to identify patterns and trends (ACSIS068)
- Compare results with predictions, suggesting possible reasons for findings (ACSIS216)
- Reflect on investigations, including whether a test was fair or not (ACSIS058)
- Represent and communicate observations, ideas and findings using formal and informal representations (ACSIS071)
