Foundation Statement strands

The following strands are covered in this activity:

  • Investigating Scientifically
    Students independently develop questions for scientific investigation, conduct scientific investigations based on fair testing and collect, record and analyse the resulting data. They identify trends in data, evaluate findings and prepare possible explanations. Students use, select and evaluate equipment, computer-based technology and other resources to meet the requirements and constraints of investigations.
  • Designing and Making
    Students independently plan, implement and manage the design process and evaluate the results using design criteria. They consider the implications of design and production in relation to environmental, aesthetic, cultural, ethical, safety and functional factors. Students select, safely use and evaluate equipment, computer-based technology and other resources to meet the requirements and constraints of design tasks.
  • The Made Environment
    Students recognise that built environments are systems created to meet the needs and requirements of people and communities.They identify techniques used to engage audiences and convey meaning when creating information products. Students explain how production processes have changed over time and model systems used to manufacture products and provide services.
