On Thursday 16 August the Science Ambassadors namely: Casey Woods, Ariana Doolan, Sarah Mens and Kacey Dickens organised various Science activities for the Prep – Year 6 classes.
The Primary students were organised into groups of 4-5 with each group rotating around six Science hands-on activities. The six hands-on activities included: magnets; an anatomy display; a cartesian diver; steady hand electric circuit; an optics and light and electrostatics including the Van de Graaf generator. Each group had about three minutes at each of the activities so there was no time to waste.
All the Primary students participated enthusiastically with the various hands-on activities. The feedback from the Primary students was overwhelmingly positive. I would like to personally thank Mr Libby and the Primary school teachers for their excellent supervision and organisation of the Primary students. I would also like to thank our lab assistant Mrs Jenny Ritson for all her help and support with setting up these hands-on activities. Finally, I would like to especially thank the Science Ambassadors and the other Senior Science students who helped out with Science Week Primary demonstrations this year.
