Thesis Topic/Title
Taking Atomic Theory Into Primary Schools


Having successfully verified the capacity and enthusiasm of Year 3 and 4 students to engage with and learn atomic theory when taught by a specialist science teacher, we are now continuing the project by seeking to upskill primary teachers to teach the program. This successful project has already attracted a keynote address in USA in 2014, a presentation at AERA in Chicago in 2015 and NARST in Baltimore in 2016. There is considerable scope for the involvement of one or more HDR students.
