The course was relevant and helpful. It gave simple instructions and gave excellent suggestions which could be used in the classroom. An excellent course with many hands on experiments that can be used straight away in the classroom without a great number of materials or expense.

The quality was fantastic and super helpful!

Inspire Young Scientists in the Primary Classroom - Cool Australia

Content was really relevant and exactly what I was hoping to learn in relation to teaching primary science. As a pre-service teaching looking to specialise in primary science, this course has really helped me understand the mindset of students within science and how to produce a class eager to learn about science and question everything they do.
