The Year 1’s ventured to Scienceworks and it was a jam packed and exciting day for all who attended. The students got to engage in many interactive learning materials. The sections they viewed and/or explored in were Think Ahead, Sports Works and the Planetarium.
In Think Ahead the students had fun viewing old technologies and seeing how these have evolved and changed over time. They especially enjoyed all the tactile experiences such as creating robots and cars. In Sports Works they immensely enjoyed racing Cathy Freeman, rock climbing, judging gymnasts and measuring their body proportions and flexibility. The Planetarium captivated everyone’s imagination. Firstly they viewed the ‘Tycho Goes to the Moon’. Afterwards they stargazed above to learn about constellations and where indigenous characters were positioned in the nightly sky. The Year 1 teachers would like to thank all the parent helpers who assisted on the day. It was such a fun and memorable day for all.
