Students from Kindy to Year 6 were highly entertained recently, when Mick Doyle from Science Alive spent two days with the College to share his passion for all things Science.
Years 4-6 enjoyed an overview of Earth and Space Sciences, as they learned about our earth’s ever-changing landscape, and how shifting tectonic plates cause earthquakes and tsunamis. They examined our changing earth and its place in space as well as the sun, the moon and our solar system, explored the forces that drive the universe, and were amazed by the science of rockets.
Kindy to Year 3 students investigated the weather and its huge impact on our daily lives. They explored how water, sun and air combine to make our weather, the water cycle, and how our world changes daily, weekly and seasonally. Fun-filled demonstrations looked at our earth’s place in space and how that affects all of us, before ‘blasting off’ with some hands-on rockets.
