National Science Week 12-20 August 2017 school theme: Future Earth



The earth's systems are always in flux and changing to one degree or another. This year's National Science Week is focusing on sustainability issues around Australia and our region and how systems respond to change.

Our water world, the hydrosphere, is interconnected to the biosphere, geosphere and atmosphere. None stand alone and this interdependence is to be appreciated and explored during National Science Week.

The Australian Association of Environmental Educators (AAEE) recent newsletter advises that
AAEE Treasurer Angela Colliver and her team created a National Science Week Resource Book, FUTURE EARTH to highlight sustainability issues that are unique to our region in and around Australia.

Teachers looking for more information on the resources should visit the Australian Science Teachers Association here
