JUNIOR SCHOOL

WONDOROUS WOMEN OF SCIENCE JUNIOR SCHOOL This term Year 5’s have been studying the contributions of amazing scientists. We celebrated our learning by sharing it with our friends in Year 7 who studied Fabulous Famous Female Scientists. We learnt so much and enjoyed getting dressed up as the serious scientists we admire. It was amazing to see how many different aspects of our lives had been made brighter and easier through the work of scientists. We were particularly impressed by the women who pioneered practices and inventions in times they were not expected to participate in society much at all. At the end of our afternoon tea we were really excited to have the opportunity to have a special guest. Mr Grice from St. Peters brought a Nobel Prize, earned by William Bragg for his work in X-ray crystallography. It was amazing to hold the precious medal. We realized that with a lot of practice and focus, that many of us will become scientist and maybe create change in the way we live as a society. Nobel prizes aren’t that far out of reach after all.
