About this Event

Term 2 2020 topics:

What’s in a Name? Classification Explained

Kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus, species…

What do these words mean and why do they matter? This workshop explores our present system of scientific classification, investigating how and why living things are named and the processes used by scientists to accurately differentiate between, and determine the relatedness of living things.

Year 7 Science

Classification helps organise the diverse group of organisms (ACSSU111)

Year 10 Science

Transmission of heritable characteristics from one generation to the next involves DNA and genes (ACSSU184)

Within these workshops we will also present evidence-based strategies that can be modified to suit any year level.

Revealing Marine Ecosystems

The world around us is incredibly complex. Due to interactions between organisms and the environment, slight changes in the ecosystem can potentially have far-reaching impacts. This workshop explores the complexity of a marine habitat and the effects of human activity on these ecosystems. Students will also consider how scientists are working to increase our understanding of this watery world, before becoming scientists themselves, investigating ocean acidification through hands-on experimentation.

Year 7 Science

Interactions between organisms, including the effects of human activities can be represented by food chains and food webs (ACSSU112)

Year 9 Science

Ecosystems consist of communities of interdependent organisms and abiotic components of the environment; matter and energy flow through these systems (ACSSU176)

Chemical reactions involve rearranging atoms to form new substances; during a chemical reaction mass is not created or destroyed (ACSSU178)

Within these workshops we will also present evidence-based strategies that can be modified to suit any year level.
