How Things Move

Big Bang Education’s Prep/Foundation Physical Sciences program has been designed to help teachers achieve the Australian Curriculum science understanding in Physical Sciences:

  • The way objects move depends on a variety of factors, including their size and shape (ACSSU005)

Students will participate in a hands-on workshop investigating movement, including how different livings move and how their environment affects their movement; and how different objects and balls move and factors that can affect or alter their movement.

Workshops are delivered by a professional science educator with over 10 years of experience.
