The theme for this year’s Science Week was "Glass – more than meets the eye", which had staff and students participating in a range of activities involving glass or glass-like materials.
Some very eager students also participated in the Education Perfect Science Championships, and we are pleased to announce that Casey Grammar School came first in Victoria out of 453 schools that participated!
On Monday, students set scorpions or moth wings into resin to produce some beautiful pieces. At the Assembly on Tuesday, the Heads of House and Head of Year 7 competed against each other to see who would be the most accurate at performing a titration using specialised glassware. Mr Brown was very pleased to be deemed the winner!
At lunchtime on Tuesday, students began making their beautiful glass tile coasters and returned on Wednesday to finish them off. There were certainly some wonderful creations! Wednesday also saw Mr Tutera use some more glassware that can be found in a Science Laboratory when he demonstrated the distillation of rosemary oil to intrigued students.
On Thursday, we made some 3D images using plastic to mimic glass. There were many gasps as the students saw their images come to life. On Friday, the Bake-Off winners were announced. Congratulations to the four students who made some wonderful cakes based on the themes of science, best decorated and most creative.
Thank you to all of the science staff for organising these fantastic events and to the students for their participation.
