This week our 6G students enjoyed an incursion with Brad and Aleesha from Curtin University.
The Curtin STEM Outreach program is committed to providing opportunities for future scientists and engineers, as well as their educators – encouraging them to learn new skills, meet like-minded people and spark excitement for science and engineering.
Aleesha and Brad presented an activity that incorporated simple circuits using electric snap on kits. They commenced the presentation by demonstrating the flow of electrons and how static electricity works.
The children were required to meet a challenge by imagining they were stranded in the in an underground cave : How would they alert rescuers? How would they keep cool in the heat? And what would they use for light in the pitch black of night?
Using the Snap on Kits, the students were able to successfully create all three devices and complete the challenge.
We thank Brad and Aleesha from Curtin STEM Outreach for an informative and exciting incursion
