Term 4 Workshop topics:

Workshop 1: Flight Club

Investigate how the animal kingdom has perfected the art of flying using knowledge, expertise and resources shared by Queensland Museum. In this hands-on workshop, you will get up close and personal with Museum specimens to examine the unique features and adaptations that enable flight. Explore how you can connect these biological understandings with design and technologies concepts in our ‘Flight Club Challenge’ before examining ways in which workshop content can be adapted to further extend student engagement with science.

Curriculum Relevance:

Year 5 – Living things have structural features and adaptations that help them to survive in their environment (ACSSU043)

Year 6 – The growth and survival of living things are affected by physical conditions of their environment (ACSSU094)

Year 7 – Change to an object’s motion is caused by unbalanced forces, including Earth’s gravitational attractions, acting on the objects (ACSSU117)

Workshop 2: Earth Shattering Science

In this workshop you will use evidence collected by scientists at the Queensland Museum to identify how the Earth has changed over time. You will also investigate how the theory of plate tectonics can explain geological changes and become an engineer to solve a real-world problem using design-thinking and mathematics.

Curriculum Relevance:

Year 6 – Sudden geological changes and extreme weather events can affect Earth’s surface (ACSSU096)

Year 9 – The theory of plate tectonics explains global patterns of geological activity and continental movement (ACSSU180)


Facilitators:
Jillian Roberts, Future Makers Learning Manager
Chae Swindell, Future Makers Learning Officer

Year levels: Suitable for teachers of Year levels 5 through to 9

Workshop topics will be repeated across both days. Please visit our website for information on the topics and their curriculum relevance.
