National Science Week

​Our visiting scientist helped us to identify prawns using a dichotomous key.

​Australia’s annual celebration of science is on from 16-24 August and includes shows, talks, festivals and more around the nation. The BCSS science club will have a range of hands-on activities for students at 11am, Thursday, 21 August.  Any students from Years 3 – 7 are welcome to attend.  As an early treat, last week students enjoyed working with Mr Rob Kenyon as part of our Scientists in Schools Program, to classify prawns and learn about fishery management for sustainable harvest.

If you are interested in more science activities around Brisbane, the Queensland Museum & Sciencentre is hosting a science festival: Everyday Einstein which includes a program of fun, educational activities and student-led sessions; with something for every age group from prep through to high school, tertiary students, curious adults and professionals.   Most of the events are free and include TEDx style student presentations, musical performances, student versus scientist debate, roving scientists, chat booths and QM&S specimen collections.
