Why teach Science?
Children are curious to know how their world works. They want to find out more about the interesting situations they encounter on a day-to-day basis. The Somers Primary School Science program allows children to explore their world using a ‘hands on’ approach. Children learn the skills and key concepts of Science by learning in real life situations. Children at Somers Primary School have the opportunity to consider the big questions that will confront their generation such as, ‘What is the impact of carbon on our atmosphere and climate? If carbon is harmful to the environment, how do we generate electricity in a way which does not have a negative impact on the environment?’
