Science and Technology outcomes with Investigate (Stage 3)

What is Investigate?

Investigate is an initiative of the NSW Department of Primary Industries School Program. By completing the Investigate units students will understand the role that science plays in their everyday lives. Real-world content guides the application of these skills in a meaningful learning context that delivers cross-curriculum outcomes.


Resources provided support teachers through a series of learning experiences and activities. This includes an Inquiry unit of work; cross-curriculum priorities and general capabilities; and research material. You can choose to use some or all of the activities to develop a teaching and learning program suited to your local needs and situation.
