Science Week at Camp Hill

This year the school celebrated Science Week with a large number of activities, programs and events. The students on the Junior campus created a Sustainable City of the Future which incorporated all the elements of the demands of 21st century living in a sustainable environment. Each class developed one component of the city and the city was put on show on Friday 18 August – to great delight from all the contributors.

 
Our Year 5 students were also fortunate in being invited to Science celebrations at Coorparoo Secondary College as part of their STEM Challenge.
 
Mrs Bryden and Mr Branagan took a small group of future marine scientists to explore Moreton Bay with the Moreton Bay Environmental Education Centre team – what a fantastic experience to see hands-on science. They learnt to classify plankton and small fish species.
 
We were also fortunate to have two well renowned scientists visit our school to share some of their passion and interest in Science. Adrian Crocetti shared his expertise in sustainability and how we can maintain a healthy environment, in particular ways that we can maintain healthy waterways. Dr Kathryn is a regular visitor to our school. Over a number of weeks she has assisted some students in Years 4 to 6 to conduct rust experiments. Dr Kathryn has also been visiting our Junior Campus to engage our students in Science Week activities.
Our students had many opportunities to explore a challenge or issue through scientific examination and to see how developing a hypothesis is not restricted to a few, but many.
