This online resource is a Science Netlink lesson that involves students doing hands-on activities that explain the role of pH in haircare and how better haircare products can be developed.

Background information suggests some of the motivations for students and provide links to supporting animations.

Worksheets and videos are also provided, as are possible assessment tools.

Finding scientific solutions

This online resource focuses on the Science as a Human Endeavour strand of the curriculum.

The resource allows students to investigate how scientists work to solve problems that affect people’s lives and the lives of other organisms. They can examine how scientists identify problems and gather evidence to develop explanations.

The resource also supports teachers in providing a scaffold for teaching the content using investigation questions already developed by students.

The resource also provides assessment tasks to gather evidence on student understanding.
