Over the past 6 weeks, Year 5 and Year 6 students have been working together in groups of 3 or 4 to research a scientific topic of their choice and have chosen a relevant science experiment to showcase.
On 15 August, they will all come together in the gymnasium and present their research, show their experiments, provide STEM activities and talking about their learning to all of the younger classes at the school. Foundation to Year 4 students will be able to roam the gym and explore topics of their choice. Teachers, SSOs and parents will also be able to approach different groups and talk to students about their learning.
The Year 5 and Year 6 students will be the teachers for the day and will be showcasing all of their learning in the most interactive way possible. All adults who enter the Science Expo will be able to vote for their favourite booth which will show a good understanding of their topic and an engaging and exciting experiment. The winners of the Science Expo will win prizes and action-packed experiences.
Foundation to Year 4 students will be able to enter the family competition where families come together to work on a science project together. Parents, older siblings, younger siblings all work together on one project which will be showcased in the Science Room during National Science Week.
Throughout the week, science lessons will focus on these students showing their projects / experiments to their classmates and talking about the science behind the project. Adults will also be able to vote on their favourite family project.
