In the last week of term 1, APHS Year 8 Science class 8SCIT presented their "magic show" to the delight of the Year 5 students at Parramatta Primary School. 8SCIT worked together in small teams to research and a prepare a short interactive "magic trick" that was based on illustrating one scientific force - magnetic, electrostatic, electromagnetic or air pressure. Each team was responsible for planning and practicing their "trick" as well as preparing a poster and rehearsing a scientific explanation of how their "trick" worked. The teams then set up a Science fair at Parramatta Primary School where the Year 5 students tested out each "trick".
A huge thank you to Parramatta Primary School for being an enthusiastic and supportive audience and well done to 8SCIT for working hard and developing impressive communication and teamwork skills.
