Well done to all students, through these three lessons you would have not only gained knowledge of our solar system, methods of space travel and calculations of space travel, but you have also applied this knowledge in a hypothetical professional role. In addition you have also applied your classroom knowledge into a relevant, modern and an Australian scientific
development.

As the syllabus outlines, students participating through these role playing activities are meant to establish an understanding of:

  • links between classroom experiences and their world
  • science as a human endeavour
  • career opportunities in science and related fields
  • media coverage of scientific events
  • ongoing and recent developments in scientific ideas and applications, including recent Australian achievements

We'll let you know how the proposal and the letter go!
