The Science by Doing website went live in July 2013. To use the website and access materials, teachers and students need to register. More than 30% of all Australian high school science teachers have now registered, with the rate of registrations continuing to increase.
There has also been a significant increase in the usage of the Science by Doing website. The usage rate is measured by the number of website hits, which increased from 131,000 in August 2013 to more than 2.1 million in March 2015.
All Science by Doing online curriculum units are expected to be available by August. Each curriculum unit is made up of a student guide, a student digital and a teacher guide. The student guide can be downloaded to a computer or tablet and provides hands-on investigations, while the student digital is linked to an array of interactive digital activities and film clips.
