Brauer College expo ignites interest in science

THE fascinating world of science has proven to be the most popular subject at this year’s Create, Explore and Inspire Education Expo at Brauer College.

Students and their parents were invited to attend the expo, which enables families to experience learning in a hands-on fun and relaxed atmosphere.

Project co-ordinator Leigh Roberts said more than 150 people attended, with most enjoying the science workshop, potions and explosions.

“They learn with frozen water and salt and how to make little ice castles,” Ms Roberts said.

Participants also learnt to create a vortex flame, and combined candles and balloons with heat to create an explosion.

Other activities included elite basketball coaching with Tim Gainey, carpentry, robot wars, cake pops, and an animation workshop.

“This is the second year we’ve run it. The college has a fantastic group of staff and student leaders who are passionate about what they do and that’s what makes the event so successful,” Ms Roberts said. “It was a joy to see the families smiling and interacting together.”
