Primary Science

This year CrookED Science is working with several primary schools to build the capacity of primary teachers in working scientifically and working technologically in light of the new mandatory NSW Science & Technology K–6 Syllabus. This is being achieved by in situ modelling of the pedagogy of science & technology, team teaching and mentoring. Most importantly, by bringing fun science experiments and technology projects into the classroom and empowering the existing teachers, we are making science & technology exciting and engaging for the students and providing added depth to their learning.
For more details how CrookED Science could support your primary school(s) please contact us here.

HSC Physics

Also this year, CrookED Science is working with several secondary schools to compliment the physics teaching already taking place with a blended learning model involving:
  • face-to-face intensive classes
  • video conferences
  • 'flipped' videos
  • ePortfolios
  • constant online feedback
  • and holiday classes.

Writing personal blog posts along with republishing some of the best posts from other science blogs, we hope to stimulate conversation and a sense of fun around science for parents and children, preschool to secondary. Exemplar posts that may appeal to your families include:
