In the science learning area students learn to investigate, understand and communicate about the physical, biological and technological world and to value the processes that support life on our planet.
Science helps students to become critical thinkers by encouraging them to use evidence to evaluate the use of science in society and the application of science in daily life.
Here at discover Alcoa, there are cross-curriculum learning activities relating to different aspects of Alcoa's operations, which teachers and students can use in an interesting, fun and interactive way – while expanding their knowledge and understanding through the application of scientific theories.
