Light, Heat and Matter

Learn about chemical reactions, pressure and the wonder of reflection and refraction

RECOMMENDED FOR YEARS 5-6

 

This incursion challenges students to think critically about pressure and the ways it can be turned into heat, movement and even explosions. Solid, liquid or gas? Get to the bottom of this in an independent slime making session where grade 5 and 6 students are challenged to follow our slime method and work as a team. Your students will further investigate how light really works and discover just how fantastic reflection and refraction really is.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

The students loved Brent's presentations. They were thrilled to see him a second time ( 1st time 2 months ago). Not only did he keep the activities and presentation interesting, he also built rapport with the children and even remembered student names from last incursion.

Oakleigh PS

All students had a great time during the incursion. You guys are doing a fantastic job. Maybe to expand your incursions you should look into offering 'circus skills' or 'boot camp' style incursions.

Feliz Cakar, Glen Waverley South Primary School

Great hands on activities ensured that all students were engaged in whatever they were doing.

Park Ridge PS

I am continuously amazed by the commitment, engagement and presentation by the talented staff and leaders of Supreme Incursions. The leaders present with an extremely high level of interest for the children's participation - they always want to have the best experience possible. The combination of having a learning experience as well as a fun time is very well balanced.

Mel was amazing, the quality of resources and knowledge was impressive. The kids were absolutely buzzing after and we have now set up a Tinkering area in the room for the rest of the unit. Inspiring and thorough, Mel was great with managing the kids and having them engaged. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!

Blackburn Lake PS

The students were highly engaged and they were able to recall many of the learnings of the session, not just the activity. Thank you very much for re-arranging the time and being flexible.

All of the grade fours loved the Billy Carts incursion today! Andy was a great presenter and the students thoroughly enjoyed all of the rotations. They consolidated their learning in a fun and interactive way! I have written a blog post for my class blog about the incursion if you'd like to look at it http://missjordan.global2.vic.edu.au/2014/11/21/billy-carts-incursion/ Thanks for organising the incursion for us!
