The Science Academy is an After School Extension Program for students from any school with a passion for the STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).
In partnership with Edith Cowan University's School of Engineering, students from Mundaring Christian College will have the opportunity to work alongside professional scientists. The engineering program will continue throughout the year and runs during school terms.
During Term 1, Year 4-6 students will learn about Newton's Laws of Motion by designing and building a trebuchet, a type of medieval catapult. Year 7-9 students will conduct a series of experiments investigating fluid dynamics.
Students currently enrolled in the Science Academy represent a variety of schools including Mundaring Christian College, Beechboro Christian School, Ellenbrook Christian College, Greenmount Primary School, Kingsway Christian College, Quinns Baptist College, Southern Hills Christian College and Swan Christian College.
