On Thursday the 17th of October our Grade 4 students attended an Overnight Stay at Scienceworks. Students arrived at school at 5:45pm and departed to Scienceworks by bus. Upon arrival students rolled out their self-inflatable mats and got settled.

Students viewed the Planetarium Show ‘Moonbase ONE’. The show featured stunning visualisations of the Moon’s violent formation and captured the achievements of lunar exploration during the Apollo era. Students stayed on after the viewing to learn about the Melbourne Night Sky, and participated in a Q&A session to clarify any pending questions that they had.

Staff and students enjoyed supper and a movie before bed.

In the morning students enjoyed breakfast in the Scienceworks conference room and played on the exciting outdoor playgrounds.

Students had the unique opportunity to attend exclusive exhibition viewings of “Ground Up” and “Beyond Perception” before Scienceworks was open to the public.

One of the highlights of the Overnight stay was the Chemical Science program “Cool Stuff” where students explored the effects of temperature on solids, liquids and gases using liquid nitrogen.

On our way back to school we stopped over at ‘Club Italia’ for a very yummy lunch!

I would like to personally thank Mr Dean Squires and Mrs Amanda Galea for attending the overnight stay.

Overall, it was an extremely enjoyable and educational experience, and I look forward to organising more exciting overnight stays/camps in the future.
