About this Unit
Scientific discovery and inventions have made a significant impact on contemporary society. Science is a dynamic, futures oriented, collaborative human endeavour arising from curiosity and interest. In this unit students explore science as a distinctive way of thinking about and explaining events and phenomena. This unit aims to develop students’ understanding of the creativity of science and technology concepts and investigative and innovative processes. As the unit also aims to investigate the impact of scientific discoveries and inventions on society, students will examine how various perspectives, such as cultural (including Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) perspectives, explain natural phenomena. This unit will benefit students interested in teaching as a career to design authentic learning programs that explore how scientific discovery and invention are applied in everyday life.
