Science Challenge Day 2016
The Thurecht group co-hosted the first annual Science Challenge day at the Springwood Road State School. Four schools (Springwood Road State School, Springwood Central State School, Rochedale South State School, and Chatswood Hills State School) participated in the challenge with students aged between 8-10. The students participated in 2 challenges, one demonstration, and were treated to make-your-own liquid nitrogen ice cream. The challenges focussed on using indicators extracted from red cabbage to learn about acids and bases, and watching yeast grown by monitoring the gas they produce.
Thank you to all the teachers and students from all four schools for making it a great day! A special congratulations also goes to Springwood Central State School for winning the competition this year. See photos from the event below.
