St Emilie’s has a new Scientist in Schools partner called Mr Chris Sayer!
Mr Sayer is a retired Mechanical Engineer who has agreed to come and work with some of our extension science students in science and maths. For maths buffs, he will be talking Fibonacci numbers and the golden ratio theory and in science we are looking into compressive forces and explore how a structure supports a load.
Science by Email is a free online newsletter produced by the CSIRO for students, teachers and anyone with an interest in science. Lots of great reading, simple experiments and more for children and families to explore! We hope you check it out!
Below are links to how to subscribe and to this month’s newsletter – have fun!
In addition, if you are looking for some fabulous reading material for your children, perhaps a birthday subscription to either the Scientiffic Magazine (ages 7 – 10 years) or the Helix Magazine (ages 10 +)?
See some samples from these fabulous magazines below!
