Spend a day learning about the HSC science extension course exploring best scientific practice, experimental design, research techniques and reviewing statistical analysis of data.

We will focus on Modules 2 and 3 of the Science Extension course. Half the day will be spent exploring best practice experimental design and identifying potential challenges, with a view to good designs producing good analyses.

The other half of the day will be an exploration of various statistical hypothesis tests as detailed in the syllabus.

PhD candidates from across the faculty have volunteered their expertise to provide advice for your students as they undertake this exciting dive into authentic scientific research.
