At Tyabb Railway Station Primary School our students work in Science using the Primary Connections Program. This program is designed by the Australian Academy of Science and links Science and Literacy.
Our Science program contains 3 interrelated strands-Science understanding, Science Inquiry Skills and Science as a Human Endeavour. These 3 areas provide students with the understanding, knowledge and skills through which they can develop a scientific view of the world.
