    Nature of science

    The nature of science guides teachers in science to build the skills required by scientists at all levels, from the basics of observation to the more complex skills of collaboration, investigating and decision making within science. It is important within the classroom environment that students have opportunities to build and practise these skills in order for them to become confident science-literate citizens.
