Grant for sci­ence lab

Joondalup Times - - STREET WATCH -

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.
