Welcome to Science 2017. Mrs Theodosiou, Mrs Starbucks, Mrs Rogers and Mrs Berglund have been teaching Science this year. Throughout the year students have been exploring Biological Sciences in Term One, Chemical Sciences in Term 2. In Term 3 we have been engaging in Physical Sciences tasks and discussing forces and energy. In Term 4 students will be discovering aspects of Space and the Earth.
During Science week the Science room will be open each lunch time for a variety of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) activities. Scitech will visit and present entertaining and educational shows.
The Go Green Team has been hard at work promoting environmental Sustainability and recycling. They help to run the Worm Warriors, caring for our worm farm and growing a number of plants, as well as emptying and monitoring the paper recycling bins. This year they have been building a green house, using cool drink bottles as the walls and roof. They will present their research on recycling and hold workshops at the next Kids Teaching Kids Conference in September.
Later in the year Students will have the opportunity to attend the Festival of the Stars where they can participate in activities throughout the school from all the specialist areas. The science area will be includes telescopes and rockets.
If you have a particular interest or occupation in any of the four Science areas that you would like to share with us, please come in and speak to us.
