Year 9 Thinkers in Education – Incursion

Event Date: 15/11/2019 - 15/11/2019

The Science Department has organised an incursion for 36 Year 9 students.

A full day for students to develop a huge range of creative, critical and strategic thinking. Target Mars is a carefully structured blend of hands-on physics, chemistry and biology activities enthuses students to view science, engineering, teamwork and problem solving in a new light as pioneers of the future.

This specialist STEM activity day is game-like in style, pitting teams of students against one another in a race to have technology, skills and knowledge to Colonise Mars.

This is a program that was trialled by selective high schools in 2014 and has continued as part of their critical thinking program. More information can be found on the following website.  Thinkers in Education
