Primary Programs

Be a robot controller. Students explore how robots are controlled and take on a range of challenges.
Investigate forces through play based exploration of everyday items.
Discover what is 'beneath our feet', how it got there and why it changes.
Be a rock detective and explore how rocks are made and classified.
Be a paleontologist for a day whilst you discover fossils from millions of years ago.
Learn visual coding and use your math skills and strategies in a robot battle.
Build a smart autonomous rescue robot to help gather intelligence from a collapsed mine. A real life application for robotics using Lego EV3 robots.
Explore the geological history of one of Ballarat's oldest volcanoes and discover changes over time.
Put on your lab coat and become a scientist as you explore physical and chemical changes and solve the mystery substance challenges.
Explore earthquakes through virtual reality and discover how they relate to tectonic plates. Work as an engineer and a geologist to survive the quake!
Use augmented reality to explore the earth's structures and process and discover links with natural disasters such as earthquakes and volcanoes.
Work scientifically by creating experiments to explore a range of renewable energies and learn about the impact of fossil fuels on our world.
Get charged up whilst exploring electricity. Create a range of circuits and see if you can master the 'mouse trap challenge'.
Get charged up whilst exploring electricity. Create a range of circuits and see if you can master the 'mouse trap challenge'.
Explore efficient visual coding to create a repeating pattern then create an aurora by painting with your Sphero robot.
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.
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.
A brief introduction into flight using experimentation with paper planes. Through investigation and inquiry, we look at what causes lift and steering in planes.
Fossil skeletons and trace evidence allow us to picture what life and creatures from the past may have looked like. Explore what is a fossil and specifically examine what is a trace fossil. Students will be making salt dough fossils.
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.
