Skills for learning, life and the world of work

Full Day to Explore the World of Chemical Sciences

In this incursion, students begin the day by developing science inquiry skills through undertaking a series of experiments that test the reactions, changes and behaviours in chemicals.
Working in teams, their enterprising mindsets are then engaged when they go into ‘The Lab’ to produce their own bath bomb, testing and choosing betweens colours, scents and designs.
Using their digital literacy skills, students will research and segment their bath bombs, and will then create branding and packaging for their products.
The day culminates in a showcase and presentation of each teams results and final products.

The Lab is an action packed day which links to the Chemical Sciences Unit. It is an enterprising program, with students developing key skills in teamwork, critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, financial literacy, digital literacy, communication and presentation skills.
