Maitland Area School

Maitland | Yorke Peninsula | South Australia

The Shell Questacon Science Circus was in town this week running science workshops for our R-7 students on August 13-14.

The lively presentations, run by science graduates studying for a Master of Science Communication Outreach, focused on 'Balance' and 'Flight' and were warmly received by our students.

Classes made paper aircraft, modelled twirling seeds, rode a balloon hovercraft and attempted to construct bird nests from straws to support water balloons.

Feedback from the staff and students was very positive and the entertaining, knowledgeable and very personable presenters commented favourably on our students' involvement and behaviour.
