Melbourne Trip

Science Group fly to Australia and Antarctica

Ten Students from Year 13 headed to Melbourne recently to explore Science and careers that could be pursued in Science.

We visited the Southern Hemisphere’s largest Synchrotron (particle accelerator) as well as Melbourne Zoo and the Sea Life Aquarium. In addition to this we experienced a very new video of parts of a cell moving and working as well as having to make our own slides of cells that were viewed on an $80,000 microscope.  We went behind the scenes looking at the Water Chemistry of the Melbourne Aquarium and undertook day courses on Stars, astronaut testing, and Cell Biology.  The highlight of the trip was our once in a lifetime trip over Antarctica. The dormant volcano of Mt Melbourne as well as the massive glacier’s and the newest Antarctic base by South Korea. We were also treated to a massive amount of pack ice in the Ross Sea.

If you are interested in being part of the 2019 trip contact Ms York in the Science office. You need to be in Year 12 taking one or more Sciences and be interested in a career in Science.
