Research and evaluation

Science by Doing is an evidence-based education initiative that is guided by thorough research and evaluation.

In 2018 Professor Peter Aubusson and his research team from the University of Technology Sydney completed an extensive evaluation of Stage 4 of Science by Doing.

According to the evidence gathered from teachers and students the Science by Doing program has had a very positive impact on teaching and learning. Students said they enjoyed learning science using the Science by Doing resources.

A summary of the evaluation report is found here – UTS Evaluation Summary.
