Science Alive 2017

Students from the Disability Unit boarded the bus on Friday 4th August and headed directly to the Adelaide Showgrounds for the 2017 Science Alive exhibition.

Like particles moving in a gas state, students moved freely and quickly around the auditorium visiting many of the 60 exhibits on offer. The focus on hand-on, interactive, dynamic education saw many of students immerse themselves in the fun and excitement of learning about the world, discovering “why things work and what they do”.

The hands-on approach, otherwise known as kinaesthetic learning (learning by doing), was a great hit with all students attending the event. Experiments were a plenty as some explored the science and engineering of robotics, building torches, driving cars, chemical reactions and even creating smoke rings 2 metres in diameter!

Serena summed up her experience by saying:

“Science Alive was very good and educational, I learnt about momentum and while visiting the ‘science of jumping’ exhibition I even broke my personal best jump height in the process”

Jay added;

"I really enjoyed making my own torch and learning how it actually works"
