Science and technology is mandatory for all students from Kindergarten to Year 6.
In science and technology, students explore the natural and made worlds. They learn how to apply scientific and technological skills, knowledge and understanding across a broad range of contexts.
Science provides a way of inquiring about the world around us. It explores evidence and investigates ways to discover, develop and produce solutions to real world problems. The inquiry and skill-based nature of science opens doors to ideas and discoveries.
At Cromer Public School, the students are involved in using ICT as a learning tool with interactive technology having a positive impact on student engagement and learning outcomes.
The school has two designated computer labs. There is a video conferencing capability in one of the labs which is used to further enhance learning. These facilities are used regularly to communicate with Kansai University school children in Japan.
Every classroom has an interactive whiteboard as well as a number of computers including laptops and iPads for students to access within their classroom.
