The primary and secondary students at Blackall Range Independent School (BRIS) will be participating in hands-on rotational interactive science activity stations on Friday 18 August, to celebrate National Science Week.
The Science Factory Expo will challenge young minds from 5 to 14 years and it will present students with the opportunity to explore a wide range of exciting and challenging science and technology based activities. Each activity has been carefully crafted with specific age appropriate content and extensively trialled, aiming to teach accurate scientific concepts and reinforce them through simple hands-on experiments.
This incursion will focus on the key functions of creative and critical thinking including, generating alternative ideas and solutions, problem solving, making new connections, and seeing things from a different perspective. Students will be able to create, invent and improve their overall thinking skills in a fun and educational way.
Experienced presenters will set up interactive science and technology based activities in our outdoor multi-purpose space and every activity has easy to follow instructions and graded question cards making each session a guided discovery lesson for the students at BRIS.
