Students Celebrate Science Week

Students conducting experiments L-R Lily Lau, Sayler Delves, Ali Thomas and Eden Saunders

National Science Week commenced on August 11 and students across the school got involved with lunchtime science experiments and demonstrations, including 'Methane Bubbles', 'Elephant's Toothpaste' and a titration competition where Junior School students had the opportunity to practise experimental procedures and scientific skills that they normally would have to wait until Middle School to engage in.

Teachers were particularly impressed with the ideas that students came up with to explain their observations. A daily science quiz was also held with students from across all year levels submitting entries to questions on a range of topics, including chemical reagents, meteorology, energy sources and astronomy.

Well done to all students who were involved, particularly those who participated in the lunchtime activities and submitted quiz entries every day! Thank you as well to the Science staff and Laboratory Technicians for their work in setting up and supervising the experiments and demonstrations.
