We explored how Science and STEM can be put into practical applications in the real world.
Our Year 10 students had a great time at a Science/STEM excursion in Murdoch University on the first day of the Science Week. We explored how Science and STEM can be put into practical applications in the real world.
In a workshop called ‘Gardens of the Galaxy’, students first learned about the Science behind space exploration. Later, they teamed up to engineer their own garden prototype that supports plant growth in space.
In another workshop, students put on their forensic detective cap and analysed clues such as shoe patterns, fingerprints, and blood antibodies to solve murder mysteries through a break-out box contest. You can imagine the intense excitement that our students experienced in this workshop.
After lunch, students also had the opportunity to visit the anatomy museum, in which students walked through the gallery of amazing organ systems displays.
Our students were able to make connections of the body systems they have learned in school to the vivid display in front of them. They had a rare opportunity to feel the texture of a real lung!
We concluded the day with much to take away and were all filled with much gratitude towards God for the opportunity to visit Murdoch. We were inspired to use our talents to make a positive impact to this world that God created.
