Community Science Project is a Professional Practice unit within the Bachelor of Science. In this unit students will be able to apply self-management, team management, and professional skills. Students will be required to identify an area or aspect of science that motivates them. They then will perform a broader search of professional organisations that may align with their interest and future career, approach the organisation to propose collaborative work in order to design, analyse, synthesise and apply a range of scientific principles and methodologies. In undertaking this unit students have the opportunity to apply their scientific knowledge and skills with a high level of autonomy, judgement, responsibility and accountability in collaboration with others to articulate the place and importance of science in society. Students also will be able to establish potential career networks and opportunities.
