Science and Technology is the Key Learning Area where children develop a greater interest in the world around them and open the way to an enriched view of themselves, society, the environment and the future.
Using the NSW K-10 Science and Technology Syllabus for the Australian curriculum students:
* develop a sense of wonder and expand their natural curiosity about the world around them through their understanding of, interest in and enthusiasm for science and technology
* develop competence and creativity in using the processes of Working Scientifically and Working Technologically in a range of hands-on scientific investigations and design projects
* use the skills and processes of Working Scientifically and Working Technologically to develop their knowledge and understanding about the Natural Environment and the Made Environment
* develop their science skills, knowledge and understanding through a range of contextualised learning experiences selected by teachers on the basis of relevance to students’ learning needs, interests and experience
