Join the Science Learning Hub and The Fairfield Project for two free interactive science workshops! The workshops are designed specifically to support the Primary Science Week theme - Eco-champions.

Each workshop will have a slightly different focus – and you are welcome to attend either one or both. In both workshops we will:

  • make specific connections to learning across the curriculum
  • share useful resources
  • explore how learning can be connected to the local environment.

Workshop 1: Exploring the world around us

Date: Tuesday 8 May, 3:30-5:00 pm
Venue: Fairfield College library, 25 Bankwood Rd, Chartwell, Hamilton

In this hands-on workshop we will model simple and engaging activities that foster a range of science skills. We will focus on building curiosity through observation and interaction with the environment using a contextual, integrated approach.

Workshop 2: Hands on in our backyard

Date: Saturday 12 May, 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
Venue: Fairfield College library, 25 Bankwood Rd, Chartwell, Hamilton

This workshop will introduce a range of practical ecology-based activities using everyday materials. The activities will be easily transferable to your own setting and will focus on building students science capabilities. We will model an integrated style of teaching and learning, fostering a student centred approach.
