Students at Rasmussen State School’s eyes lit up yesterday when the national science centre brought a laser show to the school grounds courtesy of Celestino. Questacon visited to deliver the prize won by the school at a North Queensland Cowboys game halftime competition.
Deputy principal Kristi Riley said it was a great opportunity to get students more excited about science. “They’re exposing them to science in an innovative and exciting way,” she said. “It’s an excellent opportunity to engage them. A lot are hands on learners and this is a good way for them to learn.”
Ms Riley said most students wouldn’t have seen a science display like it before because of growing up in a regional area. “It’s something our kids probably couldn’t have accessed without winning it,” she said. Seeing lasers pop balloons and watching a light display on the wall of the school hall were among the highlights.
