Grant for science lab
DALMAIN Primary School in Kingsley is one of 200 primary schools set to benefit from funding for new science labs over the next three years.
The State Government committed $17 million for the ‘Science in Schools’ program to transform classrooms into science laboratories by 2021.
Kingsley MLA Jessica Stojkovski said the science lab would add to the school’s strong focus on science, which includes a partnership with Scitech and work with organisation Young Engineers Australia.
“Having a speciality science lab in the school will enable teachers to plan more contemporary, hands-on activities for students,” she said.
The school will also receive $25,000 to buy laboratory equipment and resources such as 3D models of the solar system and human anatomy, digital microscopes, 3D printers, and virtual reality headsets.
