This year we have introduced STREAM (Science, Technology, Robotics, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) into our school as a specialist subject. From Foundation year to Grade 6, our students will participate in learning activities and investigations in these areas. We have a range of different robots, ranging from “Dash” to LEGO WeDo and LEGO EV3. Students will learn robotics and coding, aligned to the Australian Curriculum Digital Technologies curriculum.
There is high engagement and motivation amidst our students and allows excellent opportunities to make strong connections in their learning enabling them to apply their knowledge and understanding using STREAM.
National Science Week 2018

- Volcanoes – how do vinegar and bicarbonate of soda react?
- Magic Milk – why does detergent make food colouring move in the milk?
- Bubbling Balloons – what gas is created when vinegar and bicarbonate of soda are combined?
- Lava Lamps – Shine a light behind the bottle and watch the bubbles light up!
