The student contribution amount for this unit is fully subsidised and therefore not payable by the student.
In this unit you will develop the skills needed to work in academic lab settings and carry out experiments in a safe, ethical and responsible way. Through a range of learning activities, you will explore basic concepts in various sciences to complete experiments performed in labs. The focus will be on building report writing skills via a series of workshops and assessment tasks that call for an increased ability to communicate experiment results in a written format. You will also explore ethical considerations of conducting and reporting on scientific research
