STEM News – Science Exploration

This week our Level 2 Physics students explored the effect of magnetic fields on Taranaki iron sand:

Level 3 Physics students experimented with electric circuits. Divya Arhcal (below left) uses a programmable micro:bit controller to see a capacitor charging and discharging. Peter Wilson (below right) makes his own circuit to log the data from a capacitor charging and discharging.

Some of our Year 9 and 10 classes enjoyed learning about Climate Change. This project involved them scanning different QR codes that were linked to different articles and videos, that they then summarized into a poster:
