Welcome to the world of augmented reality (AR), where you can see what you may look like in 50 years, translate foreign languages at the click of a button, try before you buy furniture, clothes, and makeup from the comfort of your own home and even catch Pikachu in your neighbours’ yard. Now it’s your turn to go behind the scenes in AR creation!
Enjoy working as a palaeontologist - dig up the past and enter the age of dinosaurs! Discover how fossils are used to inform us about how dinosaurs survived and adapted for over 174 million years.
Explore energy transformations and determine the different types of change occurring through hands-on inquiry. Learn about fossil fuels and their impact on our world and what alternatives are available with renewable energy solutions.
We use energy every day to make life easier, from boiling the kettle to turning on the lights and travelling to school or work. Explore energy systems and their impacts on our environment.
Students will explore why the ocean water looks blue by learning about light - how it travels and how we see colours of objects. They will observe some experiments with water and light and will be challenged to explore light by completing their own experiments using the scientific inquiry process of prediction, observation and explanation.
Explore key Australian and world man-made landmarks to identify key features. Students will be challenged to ‘design and build their own man-made wonder’ using materials found around the house or online platforms such as Minecraft or Lego Digital Designer.
Join a STEM design challenge or science inquiry within the context of a picture storybook. Students will work through the engineering design process or scientific inquiry method relating to the chosen book.
What is a turbine and why are they so important to our lives? Students explore the importance of turbines in electricity generation through hands-on challenges in which they are tasked to build a wind turbine, assemble a hydro-electric turbine and investigate how variables can impact performance.
Earthquakes are devastating natural disasters. Engineers hold an essential job in minimising the impact of earthquakes on people and manmade structures. Are you ready for engineering challenges of a seismic strength?
