The Science Capabilities in Y0–8 classrooms: what are they, why should we care and how do we implement a teaching programme that builds these in our students?

At the conclusion of this webinar participants will be able to:

  • design lesson plans that explicitly develop the capabilities in their students.

Useful for all teachers and leaders in NZ Y0–8 schools but especially designed for primary science lead teachers.

About the presenter:

Chris Duggan trained as a Biochemist at Massey University and taught secondary school science, biology and chemistry for 15 years in the Bay of Plenty. Throughout her teaching career Chris had a growing sense of concern about the lack of science knowledge students had when arriving at high school. When she read an E.R.O. report in 2013 that stated over 70% of NZ's primary and intermediate schools lack an effective science programme, she decided something needed to be done. She left her middle management and teaching role mid-2013 and the rest - as they say - is history.
