At Fadden Primary School we utilise the Academy of Science, Primary Connections program. Primary Connections units provide students with opportunities to learn science as a human endeavour, a way to know and as a body of knowledge (MCEETYA, 2006).
The units develop students' skills of working scientifically as they undertake investigations and communicate their understanding about science. Science concepts are described in four conceptual strands
- Earth and Beyond (Earth and Space )
- Energy and Change (Energy and Force)
- Life and Living (Living Things), and
- Natural and Processed Materials (Matter).
