A Showcase of Projects for Science Education in Primary Classes

Neville Dimech, Primary Science - Science Centre (Malta)


This presentation is a showcase of projects carried out in various State Primary Schools in Malta by a Primary Science Education Teacher. Various classroom practices were selected from a myriad of science classroom lessons, whole-school Science Day activities and National activities. These projects present an array of Primary Science classroom and School activities showing how scientific knowledge can be developed across the curriculum. Learners in primary schools (ages 5 to 11) take science lessons as an interesting, hands-on activity with the ability to transfer knowledge from one area of study to another. Their curiosity and intelligence is stimulated in class due to engaging hands-on activities and this tends to create ripple effects at home, thus engaging the interest of parents or guardians in Science Education. This is evident in parents’ participation in Science Fairs or Open Day activities organized at school level. During such activities, they spend time with their children, working together on some scientific investigation or learning about some scientific concept through different engaging activities which the learners imprint in their memory.
