Teaching and Learning Resources have been divided into Senior Secondary Science and Lower Secondary Science (Years 7 – 10).

Senior Secondary Science includes teaching resources for VCE Biology and VCE Environmental Science.

Lower Secondary Science includes two overarching resources; ASELL for Schools – Victorian Node and Research and Development in Modern Materials. Activities within relate to various discipline areas of science.

Further resources have been divided into Biology and EnvironmentPhysics, Chemistry, or Engineering and Technology categories.

Each discipline area showcases a variety of teaching and learning resources. Some are teaching and learning sequences complete with student worksheets and a variety of other activities. 
Some are digiexplanations – short multi-media presentations of a concept, and some are short videos of scientists/engineers speaking about their research and development practice.

All resources can be adapted to suit your needs.
