Feedback from teachers
“Students found the documentary very informative and interesting. They were amazed at the case studies presented, particularly the scurvy and the baby formula stories. All students said that they had learned something new. We are considering adding it to the Year 12 Biology programme.”
– Kate Sale, Assistant Head of Faculty Science, William Clarke College, NSW, Australia
“Both the Science Kit and the Health & PE kit are very well put together. They contain some excellent resources, including fantastic research elements that are student friendly, easy for teacher preparation, and ready to go ‘out of the box.’ I could see how both of these kits could very easily be used as the base for a whole inquiry unit of study. Each lesson could easily be turned into a series of lessons providing skills-based learning in curriculum areas of literacy and numeracy as well as building on knowledge within the science and/or HPE curriculum areas.”
