Recently, Year 6 students at Century Park Campus participated in the school’s annual Science Fair. To provide an opportunity for students to apply what they learnt in class, the fair involved key concepts from the science curriculum. Previously during the school year, the students had learnt about fair testing in a “Scientific Enquiry” unit, and they acquired knowledge about the “Scientific Process”, and the importance of repeating an experiment more than once to achieve accurate results. Additionally, Year 6 students established their understanding of variables and factors, all important to any scientific experiment.
