Science education contributes to developing scientifically and technologically literate citizens who will be able to make informed decisions about their lifestyle, their environment and the kind of society in which they wish to live. They will be able to see the connections between science and people, note the relevance of science and technology to past achievements and current and future development and be aware of the impact of science and technology on society, the individual and the environment.
Patterson Lakes Primary School is committed to providing a Science program that is relevant to students today and builds upon their observational techniques over time. Effective science teaching relies on understanding students’ pre-existing ideas about science concepts and supporting students to develop more scientific understandings.
