Science show delights high school students

July 22, 2016

Students were amazed by Murdoch's explosive science show.Hundreds of high school students were dazzled by science during an explosive show at Murdoch University this week.

Murdoch staff presented the “Bringing science to life with a BANG!” show to Year 7 to Year 9 students, which spectacularly demonstrated science in action through a series of experiments.

“We are keen to inspire young people to open their eyes to science,” said Michelle Austin, Murdoch University outreach coordinator.

“Understanding and appreciating science is essential for everyone, no matter what your future career path may be.

“This show is a good way to lift science from the text book into a live and exciting reality.”

During the hour long performance, Murdoch University Technical Resources Manager Andrew Foreman and his team of laboratory technicians conducted a number of very illuminating science experiments with everyday materials.

The student groups also had the chance to tour the science laboratories and Murdoch University’s replica pilot plant.

Murdoch University’s Open Day this Sunday will provide further opportunities for the young and old to be inspired by science at the fun and explosive Chemistry Extravaganza Show from 11.00am-12.00pm and again from 2.00-3.00pm.

As well as the show there will be a wide variety of opportunities to engage in hands on and informational science sessions. A full program with times and locations can be viewed here.
