Boost Science Years 2-6

Our Boost Science incursion was a fun, hands-on and educational way of getting to know the world beneath our feet. Most of the people who loved the incursion came back with heaps of info!


I interviewed four people and all my results were positive. The most loved activity was panning for pyrite. An interesting fact that another person learnt is that a type of rock, called a pumice, could actually float in water!


Our Boost Science teacher thought that this would be a fun and educational way of learning and she was one hundred percent correct!


I thought this was a very fun experience; I loved it – especially watching the mini volcano!


Thank you to Physics Education who made it possible; and, thanks to all the people I interviewed for your answers.
