Science Week at DMSC
Students at Dimboola Memorial Secondary College celebrated National Science Week with a series of activities highlighting different aspects of science, and they invited students from St Peter’s Lutheran School and Dimboola Primary School to join them.

Activities were conducted each lunchtime and included the Pom Pom Challenge, making mini helicopters, Water Art, Catapult Challenge and will conclude on Friday with a science based spelling challenge.

On Wednesday morning students from St Peter’s Lutheran School joined the year 10 students to build mini catapults from ice cream sticks and rubber bands and to make small balancing ‘robots’.

Some students from the Dimboola Primary School attended a session on Wednesday afternoon and others will get involved on Thursday morning.

National Science Week is held annually in August and is a celebration of science and technology featuring more than 1,000 events around Australia in universities, schools, research institutions, libraries, museums and science centres.

These events involve over one million people across the country including both children to adults, and science amateurs to professionals.

First held twenty years ago, National Science Week provides an opportunity to acknowledge the contributions of Australian scientists to the world of knowledge, and it aims to encourage an interest in science among the general public, and to encourage younger people to take an interest in the world we live in.
