Science 2016

Apart from the usual courses at the college, the Science Department runs the following.

Science Club – Year 7: This very popular club with an average of over fifty student members and has been running for the past six years. The club runs a number of activities such as Astronomy, Chemistry in the Dark and Movie nights. Also includes a night bush walk and visit to Scitech. Members has also been involved in running activities in Science Week and helping to set up displays and projects. 

Astronomy Club: This new club that started in 2015 looks at recent events in Astronomy such as the Pluto Flyby this year by the space craft “New Horizon” and Exoplanets being discovered outside our solar system. In 2016 it is hope the club will extend to include more outside of class time activities. We have members from years 7 – 11. 

Garden Club: The science department is affiliated with the Garden Club as we have our own science garden where vegetables are grown and other plants are cultured that are used for class science activities. 

Year 9 Extension: Runs Field Trips to Scitech, Bindon Gravity Centre and runs a Astronomy night as a apart of the Year 9 enrichment programme. 

Other Events: The department runs a number of others events through the year to coincide with significant scientific breakthrough. This has included in the past the Pluto Flyby, the discovery of the Higgs Particle and landing of a probe on a comet this year.
