School overrun by mad scientists
STAFF and students have gone mad for science at Collinsvale Primary School.
The whole school dressed as scientists, with an array of lab coats and at least one Albert Einstein wig, as part of National Science Week last week.
“All 44 students from Kinder to Grade 6 participated in the activities,” principal Kel Innis said.
Teachers and local volunteers including a biologist, industrial chemist and a high school science teacher set up interactive stations which were visited by students throughout the day.
Activities included working with volcanoes, explosions, earthquake resistance and sense testing.
Ms Innis said it was the first time Collinsvale Primary had conducted an activities day in collaboration with National Science Week, and the school planned to make it an annual event.
Collinsvale Primary is one of 280 schools awarded National Science Week school grants to fund their activities.
The grant was provided by the Australian Science Teachers Association, which distributed $90,000 of Federal Government funds.
