The content of each resource fits within the Australian curriculum (science) years 8-10 or WA Year 11–12 science curriculum and is relevant to major science disciplines of physics, chemistry and biological sciences. Focus is also placed upon the application of science across disciplinary boundaries. Although SPICE sequences are targeted at particular year levels, individual resources within them may be appropriate for use with other years, or in different discipline areas.
- content areas fit the syllabus and involve, wherever possible, exciting new science;
- contexts are engaging and appropriate for the audience and intended outcomes; and
- there is scope for the effective use of learning technologies.
SPICE resources are currently distributed to WA Government schools through in-school and regional professional development sessions where teachers are able to examine them and discuss their use with experienced SPICE curriculum consultants.
