Giant Science!

6 November 2009

On 5th and 6th November over 150 students from years 4 and 5 in Marrickville, Kogarah, Bexley and Yagoona Public Schools attended Giant Science at the University of Sydney.

Students were treated to a Science Show by Chemistry, Physics and Biology lecturers complete with loud bangs, explosions and live animals.

Students spent their time on campus making putty, freezing flowers and learning about glowing worms, forensics, bones, mummies and much more!

Here's what a student from Kogarah PS said about the day:

On Thursday, 5 November, Year 5 and 6 went to Sydney University for Giant Science. We all learnt amazing things like how to catch criminals, how our skeleton works and how to read finger prints. We learnt about animals, chemicals and crime. The Sydney University teachers had a show that taught us lots of things about science.

There were lots of big bangs, fire and even snakes. We put a skeleton together with real bones. The bones were from all different bodies. We learnt a bit about Antarctica and the animals there from Dr Karl. We all had a great time and we discovered many new things.
