  2. 2. www.sciencelearn.org.nz(also see www.biotechlearn.org.nz) • Over 100 NZ scientists and 50 organisations in action on SLH so far… (showcases Nature of Science) • Involves all New Zealand Universities, CRIs and many independent research companies • Intended to engage NZ students • Free articles, videos and teaching ideas • Funded by the New Zealand government • National project of collaboration managed by the University of Waikato © THE UNIVERSITY OF WAIKATO • TE WHARE WANANGA O WAIKATO
  3. 3. “[There is a] need to develop a new form of secondary schoolscience education. This will increasingly depend on bothteachers and students having a closer relationship with thescience community.” Sir Peter Gluckman Prime Minister’s Chief Science Advisor In Looking Ahead: Science Education for the 21st Century April 5, 2011 © THE UNIVERSITY OF WAIKATO • TE WHARE WANANGA O WAIKATO

  8. 8. Teaching Approaches Alison Shanks World champion NZ cyclist Students analyse speed, force and power graphs for the 3000 m individual pursuit in 2008
  9. 9. Teaching Approaches Students use a hair drier to learn how air flows over different shapes. A small length of cotton shows if the air flow remains attached (close to the surface = low drag) Or separates away from the surface showing an area of high drag
  10. 10. 2: How much force is 1: How do needed to balance aerodynamic drag and drag and rolling rolling resistance resistance for a cyclist affect maximum to travel at a constant speed? speed? TEA: “On your bikes” 5 activities Differentiated / 5: Coast down Cooperative tests 3: How does tyre pressure affect rolling resistance? 4: How does drag affect terminal velocity as you roll down a hill?
