Overview

Come on a journey to learn about a job you may not have known existed!

Diver Discovery explores the connection between our Water system and its impact on the ocean. With a focus on developing problem solving skills, explore ideas and solutions to address challenges of the job.

Program Structure 

Diver Discovery is a standalone program that focuses on collaboration and problem solving skills. Students are guided through the process of a problem based learning approach with quick-fire activities. Working collaboratively students explore and hone their ideas. They will create simple prototypes to use as a communication tool and share innovative solutions to the challenges for safe oceans and safe working conditions.

Prompts can be provided for students to do self-directed research ahead of the session.

This activity uses the solution fluencies model approach to project based learning underpinned by the work of Lee Watanabe-Crockett. This outlined in National Science Week teacher resource booklet.
