A bequest is a special gift; a wonderful opportunity to ensure that the Academy remains a part of the lives of future generations.
Professor David Craig’s bequest of $50 000 which, at his request was directed to Primary Connections, will directly support the publication of four new Student Science Journals for Year 5 students to be published in January 2017. These journals support each curriculum unit and allow students to record all their work for a unit, lesson by lesson. The journals become a valuable record for both students and teachers and are a key component of the inquiry-based teaching and learning model which underpins Primary Connections.
New PrimaryConnections Student Science Journals for years 5 and 6 are currently being trialled and will be published in early 2017.
Professor Craig was a former Australian Academy of Science President and prominent Australian Chemist. The Australian Academy of Science acknowledges this valuable support in contributing to making Primary Connections a valuable part of science education in Australia.
