Our Year 10 Science students have been learning about the electric waves produced by our brains. As part of their research, the girls have been monitoring the frequency of particular brain waves.
Marine Science is offered to students who have a love of science and interested in the ocean and all it has to offer. The visit to AQWA introduces the girls to the Marine Science course and includes activities linked to adaptation, classification, conservation, food chains as well as how humans are influencing the oceans in the world.
In Biology class the girls are looking at the structure and function of DNA. Every living organism has DNA, which controls the function of their cells. The girls are conducting an experiment to break apart the cells of strawberries and extract the long thin filaments of DNA from the nucleus of their cells
This week, Year 7 Science classes have been learning about the different states of matter: solids, liquids and gases. The girls have been enjoying themselves by pretending to be particles and arranging themselves as the different states of matter. By playing this game, the girls are using kinaesthetic and visual learning styles to help them understand the topic in a new and interesting way.
