The purpose of the Science Badge programme is to extend and enrich students in science — at Levels 3 and 4 of the New Zealand Curriculum.
Students have the opportunity to study a specific science topic of their choice, in depth. By completing a range of graded activities and exercises, students receive an attractive badge and certificate. Students will be encouraged to complete challenges at home, but will also have the opportunity to work in the science lab on Wednesday or Thursday at interval with me (Mrs Johns). They can also do activities as a part of their Casebrook Challenge.
Both the students and myself will assess the completed work on Wednesday or Thursday at interval each week. This program is not a competition. The cost is $6.00 per Science Badge. Please forward this amount along with the permission slip attached to the payments box as soon as possible.
The Science Badges information is included on attachment.
