Resources

The Science and Engineering Challenge (SEC) has worked closely with past, present and future primary and high school science teachers to develop documents and training to support current teachers in the experiences that they provide to their students. We have consulted the Australian Curriculum and linked outcomes to current SEC activities. Our aim is to increase the impact that an SEC event has by complementing and enhancing classroom learning.

If you have any feedback on our teacher resources please contact our team, via email at challenge@newcastle.edu.au.
