The week will include a rotation of engaging, hands-on science experiments at stations set up in our school hall, and activities and demonstrations from all areas of the science curriculum to develop a passion for science in everyday life. These activities will involve and develop problem solving and prediction skills and a sense of curiosity about the world. Senior students will work with younger students (a class at a time) in the activities.
Students will carry out experiments with adherence to fair testing, repetition, measuring, maths calculations and accurate recordings.
For each experiment, students will have a series of 1-2 STEM related questions that they will investigate and demonstrate their knowledge about. Our results will be displayed in tables and graphs with annotated diagrams and photos. The activities will encourage student, parents and community involvement and raise the status of science as a future endeavour.
