Last week, the Science Team were very busy organising a
great number of lunchtime activities for our students to celebrate Australian
National Science Week with the theme being ‘Destination: Moon’.
We have had a group of excited Year 7 students participate
in a ‘Space Capsule Moon Landing’ competition, we launched mini rockets on the
oval with roaring success, ran a PCG online quiz, fed students ice-cream made
with liquid nitrogen and have screened ‘Last Man on the Moon’ in the Auditorium
to a group of die-hard space fans! Some classes even spent the week
designing and building water bottle rockets to compete for the highest launch!
My special thanks to the work of our amazing team of Science
Teachers and Lab Technicians for making 2019 Science Week such a special one.
We love the opportunity to promote the fascinating and diverse learning
opportunities on offer in the area of SCIENCE!
