Science and technology

Science and technology is mandatory for all students from Kindergarten to Year 6.

In science and technology, students explore the natural and made worlds. They learn how to apply scientific and technological skills, knowledge and understanding across a broad range of contexts.

Science provides a way of inquiring about the world around us. It explores evidence and investigates ways to discover, develop and produce solutions to real world problems. The inquiry and skill-based nature of science opens doors to ideas and discoveries.

World book online

Umina Public School has just purchased a subscription to Worldbook Online. This allows students to access age-appropriate information easily either at school, or at home.

It includes an encyclopedia, videos, images and activities. It is hoped students can make use of this fantastic resource on any of their digital devices.
