On Monday, April 23, Sacred Heart Parish School Year 2 students travelled to TwistED in Echuca to tune into their investigations topic for term 2 — physical science and how things move.

At TwistED they participated in a workshop to make a paddle boat and quacking duck in the science lab.

After the hour-long workshop, students explored the science play zone, experimenting and exploring with activities that include push, pull, light and sound.

Some of the favourites were the giant slinky, the light room and the paper plane launcher.

After TwistED, we took a short walk to the paddle steamers and boarded the PS Canberra for a tour and to learn about the forces used aboard the paddle steamer. Students took turns at being the skipper and steering the paddle steamer along the river.

It was an enjoyable day for all and a great way to engage the students in their learning for the term.
