Super Scienceworks

This term 3/4W went on an excursion to Scienceworks located in Spotswood. Some of our highlights were:

  • Visiting the planetarium and seeing the movie where we saw the night sky and the movie Tilt. We learnt why we have seasons on earth.
  • Learning how big our earth is compared to the sun. If the sun was gym ball, the earth would be a tiny bead.
  • The Think Ahead exhibition where we learnt about the future. Some things we saw were video games that were controlled by your hands, things were controlled with your eyes, how to be eco friendly, what the past, present and future looked like.

Here are some of the future cars we designed at Think Ahead:

What was your highlight at Scienceworks and why? What questions do you have about 3/4W’s highlights?

  1. Dear 3/4W,
    We really enjoyed the movie that tells us about night sky, how the earth tilts, why we have seasons and the planets. We also enjoyed the session where we learnt how small our earth is compared to the big sun.Thank you!

      I also enjoyed learning how the seasons work, and how small the earth is compared to the sun. I didn’t know that before.

    We enjoyed the planetarium because the movie Tilt was very funny. At the start, we saw the earth rolling around the word Tilt. Then we saw how and why the seasons work.

      I think most people’s favourite thing was the movie.It was my favourite thing I loved it. And it was fun to learn how seasons work.I never knew that the earth had a tilt in I it to make the seasons work.

    From Tom

    • Dear Tom,
      I really liked the same thing but I didn’t do it because it was too busy. And my group waited but still it was to busy. Well my highlight is those doors that you could see through.
