Hennessy Catholic College Yearbook 2022

SCIENCE REVIEW 2022 Our Year 12 students enjoyed their excursion to Sydney and students who were studying Biology, Chemistry and Physics participated in the KickStart Science Programs at Sydney University where they were given an opportunity to do experiments and explore key ideas in the syllabus that are difficult to do in the classroom. These HSC syllabus-focused workshops covered key topics and experiments that require equipment or expertise in areas that many schools may not be able to provide. Their expert science communicator teams walked our students through the theory and then hands-on demonstrations to reinforce these key topics within the University’s laboratory facilities. Earth and Environmental Science visited the Australian Museum in Sydney to explore the history of life on Earth and to develop their understanding of the environmental challenges facing Australian society. In addition, they also enjoyed an excursion to Canberra where they visited Geoscience Australia to explore the fossil collections, geochronology and to see the Tsunami Warning System. A visit to the Australian National University and Dinosaur Museum consolidated understanding about Earth’s 4.5 billion year history.

Next Year ... Spheros, Drones, BBC Microbits
