ANU Field Trip

Field trip

In addition to going to CSIRO, in July 2011, the Year 3 group carried out a group project in the grounds on the Australian National University (ANU) where the participants were tasked with developing a systematic and rigorous approach to exploring concepts around their study of material means with people on campus.

The project at ANU aimed to refine skills in conversing on topics covered in the seminars and to a lesser extent practicing a scientific approach to inquiry. Many participants mentioned that they would like the opportunity to engage in conversations about the concepts they learn at the seminars. Participants engaged in conversations around the theme that they wished to understand further and to record their observations i.e. responses, attitudes, approaches, common threads or trends, etc.
