The University of Queensland Visiting Troupe have been visiting our region for 10 years. It is so good to see the children getting so much out of the visit. Here is the feedback from Yarrabah State School...
- Thirty students across years 7 to 10, two education assistants and two teachers were highly engaged with the workshops and demonstrations facilitated by Andrew and his team
- Students thoroughly enjoyed the UQ visit. Exploring scientific ideas and concepts through real-world applications (sodium polyacrylate present in nappies and canned snow) and attempting to solve fun mathematical puzzles (impossible bridge-crossing scenario) or counting to 31 on one hand, resulted in students challenging their preconceived notions of the worlds of science and math. Students said, "that was really fun", "when are they coming again", "that cold snow was deadly", "what's that slime stuff called", "can we learn more like that" etc
