     Capacity               major branches comprising study of the physical sciences. Within this unit, students will explore the
     20 - 100+              concept of objects in motion being a result of uneven focus.
                            With careful consideration and reference to the Australian Curriculum, Year 7 science students who
                            partake in this physics program will experience kinetic energy and an imbalance in force resulting in
                            motion via the application of the thrill rides offered at Warner Bros. Movie World.
     Full Day
    or Half Day             It is the aim of Warner Bros. Movie World to provide students with a high quality physics program which
    Inclusions              will focus on the reinforcement of content within a real world application. Students will experience a
                            full day excursion in which they will observe different types of roller coasters and measure the type and
                            magnitude of forces they exert on riders. Students can then summarise and discuss their findings and
                            the corresponding laws of motion, which can be presented in a multimodal method to the class.
Student Workbook            Students will collect evidence in the form of personal observations and the systematic collection and
                            recording of various types of data such as acceleration and height to determine whether the thrill rides
                            offered at Warner Bros. Movie World comply with the foundational laws of physics. The experience will

    10 - 100+    covered will address how dolphins move, hunt, protect themselves, rest, breathe and maintain body

                 caring for Sea World’s dolphins. Students will consider how some human activities are threatening the
                 survival of dolphins and will discuss actions that can be taken individually and globally to help with
     45 mins     conservation of these animals.
                 This program has been developed to cater for mixed year level groups; groups wanting a general
                 overview on marine conservation or a specific animal; and student groups from a different learning area

                            between systems.

                  During this interactive program, students of all ages will learn about the amazing biology and ecology of
                  sharks. Students will discover the variety of marine habitats where sharks live, what roles they occupy
     Capacity     in their habitats and how they are equipped to survive in their environment. Specific adaptations covered
     10 - 100     will address how sharks move, hunt, protect themselves, rest and breathe. Students will consider how
                  some human activities are threatening the survival of sharks and will discuss actions that can be taken
                  individually and globally to help with conservation of these animals.

                                 The Year 10 science curriculum explores the major branches of sciences, investigating them in different
                                 scales and unifying them to allow a generalised understanding of scientific phenomena. Within Year 10
           Capacity              science, one of the major branches is the study of the physical sciences. Within this unit, students will
           20 - 100              explore the concept of energy conservation and how energy is transferred and transformed within a
                                 system. Students also explore the relationship between mass, acceleration and force and apply these
                                 relationships to explain and justify a change in motion to an object with reference to Newtonian forces,
