Searching for new scientists!

Show me what you NOW know!

Click on the QUIZ button to start the quiz.

This term in the STEAM room, POD 2 students have been learning about the relationship between flowers and insects. We wondered, “are they friends or foes?” I wonder what most people would choose? We also took on the challenge of learning many new scientific words to help us understand and explain what is happening in this area of science. Take this quiz to show yourself and me, just how clever you are!

Biological Science

This term in the STEAM room we are learning about plants and insects and are wondering, are they friends or are they foes?

Our goals this term is to learn some ‘scientific words’ that will help us to understand and to explain to others what we are learning.

So here is your challenge – Can you unscramble these words that we have learnt so far? Click on the comment section to add your answers.

How the earth was made?

Wow, this is a really big question!

This week students from Pod 2 have visited the Earth Ed centre in Ballarat to begin exploring Earth sciences. The students had the opportunity to get ‘hands on’ with lots of different activities relating to the earth. As the term continues, students will be exploring the earth and the impact of both nature and humans on our home planet.

This video describes how scientists think the earth was made. What do you think?

Can you code? Try this

HI everyone, coding is not as hard as you might think.

When you write code you are writing a list of steps for the computer to follow. In this example you get to write code for a Yeti using blockly code.
