2019 has been a great year for the Science Department. With a dedicated Science teaching team coupled with an enthusiastic student team (over 100 Science Representatives and Ambassadors across Years 7-12) we have held a wide range of events. I would like to thank the Science teaching and student teams for their great work and support this year.
The liquid Nitrogen show was extremely successful and very entertaining. We were so excited to have Dr Rob from Scope come in to share with us the wonders of liquid nitrogen. We were able to witness the effects of this liquefied element on a multitude of objects, including lettuce, a rubber ball and other organic materials. A few lucky girls got to experience feeling the nitrogen, which was poured over their heads and on their hands. Throughout the show we were entertained with both awesome stunts and in depth explanations of the processes we were witnessing. To top it all off, the show finished with Dr Rob making the smoothest ice-cream using the nitrogen, which was quickly devoured by the audience!
Year 8 science has finished with a bang. Last week we had our science exam on Body Systems. Leading up to our exam we did many fun activities including designing a model of a heart plus dissecting a sheep’s heart. We all got our own sheep’s heart and opened it up to see inside. It was amazing and so cool! Later our teacher dissected a pluck and we could view the respiratory system including how the lungs, and diaphragm work.
A part of our revision we designed, built and played games covering all the body systems.
Year 9 Science
To tie up their Physics unit the Year 9 students have been designing and building a solar powered car. Using small household items such as bottle tops and plastic take away containers the solar cars have zigged and zagged across the campus.
