A practice focus paper which describes the building of competence and confidence in Preservice teachers (PSTs) to teach science using a multiliteracies focus. By recognising science as literacy it enables all educators including practising teachers to believe in themselves as teachers of science. Using a hands on approach that creates interactive science, PSTs build their understandings and facilitate learning for themselves, local school students and practising teachers. Through these experiences, the PSTs and those that they interact with in schools, authentically learn to think about the world through a science lens and proactively build science teaching and learning in primary/elementary schools.
