Scienceworks education excursion packages have been designed to optimise student learning within a specific content area or theme. Each package provides a suggested program for a fun and interactive day at Scienceworks that also meets specific curriculum outcomes.
The Maths and Problem Solving package will introduce your students to problem solving strategies by exploring real life situations. The hands-on activities in the Sportsworks exhibition offer a great back drop for students to investigate their understanding of a variety of maths topics, including estimation, measurement, decimals and fractions.
This package includes the Problem Solving education program as well as the self guided Sporty Maths program in the Sportsworks exhibition. The Mathamazing exhibition can be utilised for general viewing and will give students the opportunity to test their problem solving skills.
