Stage 4 - 5: Science in Action

Stage 4 - 5: Science in Action

Overview

Observation drives scientific investigation. Central to scientific inquiry is the idea that we need evidence to be able to develop solid conclusions. In this workshop students work as scientists exploring the Key Inquiry Question- How does observation instigate scientific investigation? 

This workshop is available at Taronga Zoo Sydney only and will be delivered in the Taronga Institute of Science & Learning Habitat Classrooms.  See below for further information.
