Pictured bove are Year 7 students proudly holding up certificates awarded for this year's ICAS International Science Competition.
The ICAS Science Test is an annual International Science Competition run by the University of NSW that all students can volunteer to take part in. All students who sit the test receive a certificate.
Several students from Years 7 through to 12 from both campuses took part this year. Among those who participated the following certificates were awarded:
4 High Distinctions, 7 Credits, 4 Merits and 20 Participation. Well done to all those students who took on the challenge of sitting the ICAS Science Test for 2018.
Guthridge students and their teachers participating in the Science and Tech Clubs held during Tuesday Lunch time.
Lunch time Clubs are off to a flying start for Term 2.
In the Science Club Mr K, Ms Cook and student Grace experiment with a range of chemicals to see how they react when placed in water. Amazingly, one chemical bursts into flame!
Mr Pattie’s Tech Club are learning how to repair 3D printers with a series of spare parts that Mr Pattie has manufactured on his 3D printer at home. Welcome to the amazing world of Technology and Science!
These are just two of the clubs run during lunch times at the Guthridge Campus. The Science and Tech Clubs run every Tuesday. All students are welcome to come along.
In the last week of Term 2, Year Seven and Eight students participated in science workshops run by undergraduate students from the University of Melbourne. These university students had developed interactive science activities to engage students with science in exciting and meaningful ways. Sale College students learnt about angular momentum, visualised sound waves in flames and saw how Bernoulli's principle can be used to inflate a large balloon. Students then participated in hands-on activities, seeing who could make the strongest, tallest and most creative tower, and used lasers to measure the width of hairs. This was a fantastic opportunity for students to develop their scientific knowledge and to talk with university students about science and university life in general. All our students should be commended on their respect, attention, participation, insightful questions and creative thinking.
In the last week of term 2 Year 9 students had their Melbourne Camp. It was an experience the students will remember and cherish for a long time, and they should be applauded on their responsible behaviour. During the camp students the Melbourne Museum, The Shrine of Remembrance, Melbourne Central, Vic Market, and Docklands. Many of our students had never had the opportunity to visit these locations before.
