Science Week 2017
WHAT A BIG WEEK IT’S BEEN IN SCIENCE!!
August 14-18 was National Science Week, an annual celebration of science in Australia and an opportunity to join together to enjoy and explore the wonders and benefits of science. The week enables those with a general interest in science and teachers, organisations and students, to both host and attend a range of entertaining events and activities about science, technology and engineering.
Suzanne Cory High School joined in the fun of National Science Week with a series of events all over the school. Brains were boggled at the daily Kahoot competitions, paper planes were launched high inside the Agora, fire literally was held in hands and egg landers were designed to cushion raw eggs from a two-story drop. Our science faculty provided a science-themed morning tea for all staff, creating array of science-themed cakes and pastries including a brain, Andromeda Spiral Galaxy, isotope, and atomic element symbols. Finally, the Grade 6 cohort of Werribee Primary School visited our science classes to participate in a number of fun learning activities with our students. To see what they got up to you can visit their School's Blog.
This is yet another clear example of our students living out our school motto of “Respect, Aspiration and Contribution”. Many thanks to everyone involved in this year’s Science Week and we look forward to another fantastic Science Week next year!
