Melbourne and Antarctica Trip

Melbourne and Antarctica Trip

In early February, twelve students from Year 13 embarked on an exciting trip to Melbourne to follow their passion for Science. Some of the things we got to experience were flying over Antarctica, visiting the Victoria Zoo, visiting the Aquarium and also the VSSEC (Victoria Space Science Education Centre). We even had a chance to visit the amazing RocketLab in Auckland, which was unique to our year. We also had the privilege to visit the Synchrotron, the largest particle accelerator in the Southern hemisphere. This trip not only enriched our knowledge and passion for Science, but we also developed strong friendships and expanded our cultural experiences and independence as pairs of us had to serve as the tour guides for each day, getting us from one place to another. For all of us the highlight of the trip would undoubtedly have to have been the Antarctica flight, we were fortunate enough to have great weather allowing us to see many beautiful glaciers and landscapes. If you have a keen interest in Science and would like to find out more about next year’s trip, speak to Ms York at the Science office. To be eligible you need to be taking at least 1 of the Sciences in Year 12 and be interested in pursuing a Science-based career.
