Y7-12 Science Week Highlights

Science Week has proved to be a lot of fun for Newman students this year. We flew planes, made big bubbles, launched rockets, blew up drink bottles, tested our general knowledge with Kahoots and watched Professor Brian Cox take us through the Universe on the big screen!

Year 7 student Ben Borgas won the longest flight time of 8.75sec with his amazing paper plane. Noah Connelly (Year 7) threw his plane the furthest at 26.4m. Riley Hammond and Cooper Stevens (Year 7’s) made the biggest bubbles on a beautiful sunny day in Founders Court. Congratulations also go to the winners of the Kahoots Quiz, which were Year 7 students Gary and Jake.

On Wednesday, Mr Spriggins and Mr Shuckstes put on a fantastic show on the College oval. Students jumped in surprise at the sound of a massive “boom”, as the dry ice in a plastic drink bottle exploded! With great anticipation and a chorus count of “10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1-blast off” students saw many successful rocket launches that sent them very high into the sky only to return safe and sound (except for one that landed on the Lavalla classroom building!).

Special thanks to all the Science staff who organised all the activities for students to enjoy.
