Science week a hit at St Cath’s
STUDENTS at St Catherine’s College in Proserpine got into the spirit of National Science Week this week through a number of interactive activities.
At St Catherine’s students took part in brain break morning teas, kids’ science challenges and science scavenger hunts throughout the week.
They were also encouraged to add and answer questions on the science question board with a kid’s science challenge champion awarded at the end of the week.
Students in years 1-3 also participated in Lab on Legs, an interactive science workshop run by CSIRO.
Year 4 students received a visit from a mystery scientist and all students were poised to catch their teachers performing random acts of science throughout the week.
The week will culminate tomorrow at lunchtime with a Who Wants to be a Millionaire challenge.
Students will answer science questions in an effort to win five minutes of extra playtime if they reach one million dollars. National Science Week is an annual celebration of science in Australia where school students are encouraged to enjoy and explore the wonders and benefits of science.
