Each STEM project includes:
  •   a design brief
  •   STEM curriculum links
  •   alternative project ideas
  •   a group rubric
  •   self-assessment
  •   resource sheets, if required


Science Understanding
  • Living things can be grouped on the basis of observable features and can be distinguished from non-living things (ACSSU044
  • A change of state between solid and liquid can be caused by adding or removing heat (ACSSU046
  • Earth’s rotation on its axis causes changes, including night and day (ACSSU048
  • Heat can be produced in many ways and can move from one object to another (ACSSU049


Science as a Human Endeavour
  • Science involves making predictions and describing patterns and relationships (ACSHE050
  • Science knowledge helps people to understand the effect of their actions  (ACSHE051


Science Inquiry Skills
  • With guidance, identify questions in familiar contexts that can be investigated scientifically and make predictions based on prior knowledge (ACSIS053
  • With guidance, plan and conduct scientific investigations to find answers to questions, considering the safe use of appropriate materials and equipment (ACSIS054
  • Consider the elements of fair tests and use formal measurements and digital technologies as appropriate, to make and record observations accurately (ACSIS055
  • Use a range of methods including tables and simple column graphs to represent data and to identify patterns and trends (ACSIS057
  • Compare results with predictions, suggesting possible reasons for findings (ACSIS215
  • Reflect on investigations, including whether a test was fair or not (ACSIS058
  • Represent and communicate observations, ideas and findings using formal and informal representations (ACSIS060
