The theme for National Science Week was Food: Different by Design. Science Week honours the United Nations International Year of Fruits and Vegetables and the International Year of Creative Economy for Sustainable Development.
Science Week at KPS, although an online version due to the extension of remote learning was a huge success.
Science Week is also about food-based activities at home, since the theme is Food: Different by Design. Remember that cooking, preserving, bottling and fermenting at home are great ways to stimulate your child’s thinking about the science of food, particularly the transformation of substances during the process. Families are encouraged to take photos of their efforts in the kitchen because this would make it possible to bring in photos and create a display when we are back on site at school.
The final event of Science Week, the whole-school picnic, was cancelled because of the extended lockdown. However, if you have supported Science Week in any way, big or small, we thank you.During Science Week class teachers had the opportunity to show their students interviews with parents in our community who are scientists.
