L'Astrolabe 2019

For the second year now, this project took place during Term 3, with Year 9 students from the English and French streams working collaboratively and undertaking a scientific investigation focusing on the Astrolabe, a French naval frigate currently supporting scientists working in Antarctica. This year the Drama teacher upskilled the Year 9 students on presentation skills, so this project effectively became a STEAM endeavour incorporating science, technology, arts and mathematics. The depth and variations of investigations were again very impressive, from eutrophication to magnetic fields and ocean currents, the quality of student presentations to a panel of experts showcased the calibre of our students here at Telopea Park School.

Congratulations to the following students who will be travelling to Hobart early next year to visit the Astrolabe, as their prize for winning this panel presentations and the project overall.
