Beaudesert Primary School Visit

Postby rocketman » Fri Dec 04, 2009 10:03 pm

Last Friday November 27 Blake and I had the pleasure of presenting a talk to the Year 3 students of Beaudesert Primary about rockets and space travel.

We were impressed with the enthusiasm shown by the students, their attentiveness and how well behaved they were. The students had been studying a unit on space travel and rockets. The effort the students have put into this project and enjoyment shown by them is indeed a credit to the motivation provided by Leonie Armstrong and her fellow year 3 teachers.

The students made a variety of rocket models consisting of air, water and chemical power. Some even made costumes as scientists or astronauts. After our presentation and live firing the students demonstrated to us how their rockets worked. The morning’s activities culminated in a morning tea consisting of food with a space theme.

This obviously was a wonderful and meaningful learning experience for the students. As a retired science/ maths teacher it is pleasing to see the work of the dedicated staff at Beaudesert Primary.

I thank Leonie for contacting us and allowing us to be part of this enriching experience.

Thank's Petar for posting the report and the photos ! Nice group there and I'm very impressed with the costumes etc. That NASA T shirt is real cool that Jessica is wearing. 8)

Blake's "Movember" is looking quite prominent but hey Petar, you win but it might have something to do with you having grown it for the last 25 years (?). :)

Great work guy's !!!! :D
