 Science - Miss Erin Smith

 

Hello my name is Miss Erin Smith and I am the Science teacher here at Cassia primary.

Throughout the year Students will learn four major science topics; First Term Biological Sciences, Second Term Physical Sciences, Third Term Earth and Space Sciences and Fourth Term Chemical Sciences. During science lessons students have an opportunity to develop new skills, such as questioning and predicting, nature and development, planning and conducting investigations and processing and analysing data and information collected by students.

Cassia Primary School are also involved in a program called I2S2 program through CSIRO. The Indigenous STEM Education Project aims to increase participation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). This program incorporates Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander technologies used in the past and present, such as tools, life skills and building shelters in different parts of Australia. This is an amazing opportunity for our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to share their knowledge and embrace their culture.
