The LDHS Primary STEM Class (Tjilkinypa) is in its 1st year for selected primary students in Years 3 to Year 6. It is a fantastic space for students to explore science concepts, supported with hands on learning activities using technology, engineering and mathematics in a collaborative and challenging environment.
We are developing partnerships with local organisations such as Horizon Power to deliver rich and meaningful learning experiences with lasting positive memories of education.
Involves students from Years 7 to 12 and follows the Western Australian Curriculum. Areas of focus include Biological, Physical, Chemical and Earth & Space Sciences. As well, students look at Science as a Human Endeavour and develop the skills to undertake scientific investigations through Science Inquiry Skills.
Wherever possible, links are made between the amazing environment of our local area and the curriculum through our two-way science program.
It is an exciting time in Science education and staff will continually look at new initiatives to keep the students motivated and engaged in Science.
