Year 5’s Science Excursion: Climbing the Gravity Tower and Beyond!

In an exhilarating blend of adventure and education, our Year 5 students embarked on a journey that expanded their horizons and deepened their appreciation for the marvels of science.

Our young explorers delved into the vastness of our created space and the outer space regions. Through interactive sessions, they discovered the intricate beauty of the cosmos, learning about stars, planets, and the endless expanse beyond our world. It was a glimpse into the grandeur of God’s creation, sparking curiosity and wonder in their young minds. They also showed courage and climbed the Gravity Tower with great enthusiasm.

One of the highlights of the day was the hands-on atomic activities. Guided by a real Scientist, our students became junior physicists for the day, exploring the building blocks of matter. These sessions were educational and incredibly fun, allowing the students to engage directly with the concepts they were learning.

Perhaps the most breathtaking moment came when the students had the opportunity to look through a special solar telescope, observing the sun in real time.

Throughout the day, our Year 5s were encouraged to ask questions and engage actively with the learning process. The presence of a real Scientist added an invaluable layer to their experience, providing expert insights and fostering a genuine passion for discovery.

As we reflect on this remarkable day, it’s clear that it was more than just an educational outing. It was a journey that reminded us all of the beauty of God’s creation… The students’ minds were truly blown away, filled with gratitude for God’s “Let there be…” We may be small in the grand scheme of things, but we are reminded that God created us to live Big.
