‘Egg’cellent Egg-Drop

As part of our Term 3 Science Unit, the Year 4 students explored the properties of natural and processed materials. Students were asked to design and construct a special package that could house a raw egg and keep it from breaking when dropped from a high distance. Needless to say ‘eggcellent’ fun was had by all!

Forces in Action

Our sensational Year 4 scientists participated in an exciting ‘Mad About Science’ Workshop, exploring Newton’s Three Laws of Motion through a range of fun and hands-on experiments!

Students worked in pairs and small groups to explore the elements of gravity, lift, friction and force. Curiosity and chaos ruled the day as students had fun balancing and spinning objects – spinning propellers were a favourite!
