The Mathematics and Science Centre of Excellence visited the high school again during Week 9 for there once a term Discovery Day, where the students are given the opportunity to participate in activities that can only be conducted in a Science lab. This term they continued the Forensic Science theme and were given a criminal case to solve. Students we required to examine a number of pieces of evidence and eventually come up with a prime suspect for the crime. The students work well and each developed a theory of who may have been responsible for the crime.
Hedland SHS enjoys the ongoing partnership with the Centre of Excellence based at South Hedland PS. The students have worked with all of Hedland’s high school science teachers and are gaining a good Science knowledge base by participating in the program.
