Years 5 & 6 Programs

Students in years 4-6 participate in 'hands-on minds-on' exploration of robotics and coding.
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.
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.
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.
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'.
Bioengineer man-eating dinosaurs, put them on a lush tropical island, and invite tourists - what could possibly go wrong?
Have a blast in this exciting outreach program! Students will use 21st century problem solving and collaborative skills to design, engineer and launch a water rocket.
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.
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.
