The Lab

Bombs away!
The Lab

Skills for learning, life and the world of work

Explore the world of chemical sciences

It’s time to become mad scientists! (Crazy wigs optional).

MiniBOSS’S full day incursion ‘The Lab’ is a chemical sciences extravaganza designed to get your students thinking about how science is in everything, and how we use our science skills everyday!

Students work in teams to attack different science experiments that explore how different materials cause reactions. The skills and science they learn from these experiments is then applied to an 'Every Day Science Challenge'.

Combining the skills from science, business and economics, art and english, students create their very own bath bomb business. Teams work together to find the perfect colour, scent and business logo for their target market before reporting on all their findings and business successes in the "Lab Report". This incursion is truly the bomb!

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

Just wanted to let you know the Year Sixes had the best time today. We had really great feedback from the kids and their reflections in their science books showed just how much they learned. Thanks heaps.

Here's some student feedback also:

I had so much fun learning more about reactions in science and making our own bath bombs, I can't wait to take it home to show my mum.
