In this 4 part video series, we will be breaking down ways to support your students to develop a Scientific Inquiry project for the Oliphant Science Awards.

There are clearly defined sections that the students must include in their projects. The criteria for success in each section is outlined in the Scientific Inquiry rubric (available here).

The first video covers 'Questioning and predicting' and the beginning of 'planning and conducting'. Find out more below! The variables grid used in the video can be downloaded here - it has been adapted from Primary Connections.
