Bang! Crash! Smash! Science!

posted in: Light and Sound, Schools, Science | 0

Our Year One workshop focuses on the Australian Curriculum concept that “Light and sound are produced by a range of sources and can be sensed”.

So it’s probably little wonder that this is the noisiest of all our workshops, discovered recently with the help of the Year Ones of St Mark’s Primary School in Inala.

The children enjoyed making as much noise as possible with our great range of instruments and noisy everyday objects.

As well as the noisemakers, the workshop includes experimenting with light, colours and optical illusions. And they all got to try on the latest scientific fashion accessory – rainbow glasses!

(It’s hard to tell from the picture, but the lenses of the glasses split light into rainbows, so everything the wearer looks at is edged with rainbow colours.)

They also had the chance to experience a bug’s-eye view of the world.

Thanks St Mark’s, we had lots of fun visiting your students!

Our Year One program isn’t the only one that focuses on the Australian Curriculum learning outcomes – in fact, all of our school programs do! Contact us to find out more about bringing a fantastic curriculum-based science lesson to your school.
