Pathway to Space
High school science just got a whole lot more interesting. Students from around Australia can now embark on a mission to Mars and learn what it's like to follow science and engineering careers.
Pathways to Space, a federally funded project led by the University of New South Wales, will see students working with scientists in a Mars Yard at Sydney's Powerhouse Museum and linking up via video with researchers at UNSW and The University of Sydney.

Hear the Wave!
Developed for third grade. In this experiment, students will learn all about soundwaves. Using different techniques and objects, students investigate how different sounds are made from different objects, and how the soundwaves for each are different from one another.
Biology In Elementary Schools is a Saint Michael's College student project. The teaching ideas on this page have been found, refined, and developed by students in a college-level course on the teaching of biology at the elementary
6.2 The hierarchy of human needs
Global warming: are we responsible? Is our environmental impact damaging the planet? This unit examines the use of ozone depleting technology, the impact of fossil fuel use and explores how the development of technology can influence the direction of a society. From the Industrial Revolution to the present day find out how we have changed the planet.
More Is More
The goal of our project is to promote awareness of the dangers of misusing combination products and to emphasize the importance of checking drug fact labels for the active ingredients in over the counter medications. Our target audience is consumers.
2.9 End of section exercise
Are you about to undertake a PhD in science, technology or mathematics? If so, this unit will help you to examine your work processes. You will consider and develop the nature of postgraduate work and look at the planning of work needed at doctoral level.
Silicon Nanowire Nucleation
This is an animation to accurately depict results of Eric Stach's (Purdue University) research on the nucleation kinetics of Si nanowires. The visualization shows other scientists how the graph and equations drive the interaction.

Diversity of leaves
The diversity of land plants can be seen in the diversity of their leaves. Leaves vary by color, vein arrangement, shape, texture, and thickness.
3.5.1 What is ‘reflective learning'?
What is your experience of work and what did you learn from this experience? This unit will enable you to reflect upon what you have learned from work and support you in improving how you learn at work. It will encourage you to think critically about work-based learning and review your own professional knowledge and skills.
Goldfish external anatomy
Goldfish live in the water. They use their gills to breathe. Goldfish swim in water to move around. This goldfish has pectoral fins, pelvic fins, anal fins, and dorsal fins that it uses to swim. The tail is used to steer the goldfish wherever it is going.
Time-lapse photos or video show progressions from the start of an event to the end of the event. These time-lapse photos illustrate the opening of a geranium flower to absorb sunlight. Biological processes require time.
