Engineers Week with Scientific Sue!

Engineers Week with Scientific Sue!

As part of Engineers Week fifth class were invited to an event in Mary Immaculate College. The girls really enjoyed ‘The Devastatingly Dramatic Climate Show’ with Scientific Sue.

A Bit about the Show: Weather can be extreme, scary and devasting and the effects of climate change is just going make weather even scarier.

We all know about tornados, but did you know fires can also spin! They found out why out how fire tornados can be formed and why the eucalyptus tree is the fire brigades’ enemy.

This show has given Scientific Sue a few engineering challenges. The girls learned how a super flooding system, not fed by rainwater but by Mentos can be built. High winds and flooding can knock down bridges – sometime bridges which are the lifeline for remote villages – volunteers were needed to help build a pulley system out of balloons!

A great event to be part of this Engineers Week!
