Science Week was a huge success in August at Brisbane Grammar School. The Middle School came alive at lunch times with a different activity each day, including making rocket balloons and racing them in the MS libraries, a brain boggling Science trivia quiz and making extremely cool bubble cubes.
Tuesday lunch was a real highlight when Year 12 Biology students came to the Middle School and showed us the dissecting skills they have learnt in class. I want to thank the students for demonstrating how to dissect sharks as well as pig plucks and explaining the anatomy of these animals to the Middle School Students. We were also extremely fortunate to welcome Dr Dimitri Perrin from QUT to talk about his fascinating research on the human brain.
