Children need opportunities to develop practical and inquiry skills in order to engage with the world in a scientiļ¬c way and to make sense of what they are learning.

This workshop will look at science investigations in action with a focus on integrating STEM skills and dispositions. Teachers will be led through the elements of a scientific investigation, develop an understanding of how to use an investigation planner and have access to a range of ready to use resources.

The workshop will provide teachers with explicit curriculum materials, investigations and contemporary pedagogical strategies to enable them to successfully incorporate the Science Inquiry Skills into their lessons.

Using provided exemplars and strategies, teachers will collaborate to develop STEM focussed tasks to use in their own classrooms.
