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

We have a couple of high energy children who were completely engaged in all of the activities. They were open ended and engaging for all abilities and interests. Everything was wonderful - I have recommended you to all of our staff. Thanks!

Cathy Turner, Fairfield Primary School

Thanks very much to Jamie. He was a great presenter. The children were fully engaged and enjoyed all aspects of the billy cart incursion.

Hamilton North Primary School, Karen Kent

Today we had Amy come to do the Billy Cart program. Our Year 4 students loved it and were totally engaged. Amy was fantastic with the kids and highly organized. Thank you!

Michelle Fernandez

Thank you Brent for your organisation and enthusiasm with our Billy Carts incursion. Our students had a fantastic time and loved the hands on activities you provided.

St Kevins PS, Hampton Park

All the students loved the activities, and staff enjoyed seeing different strengths emerge from individuals that don't always appear inside a classroomcontext. A few students found the team building activities challenging, but the staff managed it all really well, and students stepped through someof their issues/mindsets to then experience team in its many different forms. It was excellent. We really liked how a few 'camp twists' were includedin the Team Building activities (the race at the end), and also how some tasks were further altered as the students are at the end of Grade 2 (theblock/swamp activity). All staff at Supreme Incursions are terrific to work with, and your approach and enthusiasm makes the entire process from start to finish, smooth and enjoyablefor all involved. Thank you for a brilliant two days.

Sydenham Hillside Primary School

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.

Professional, organised, friendly, enjoyable.

Drummoyne Public School

I had very good feedback from both pupils and teachers, and we really liked Mel, Amy, Jamie and Ryan. All grades enjoyed the activities and the slime was definitely a hit! All in all, thank you very much, we are very happy with the incursion and looking forward to seeing you again for more.

Camberwell PS

We had Year 3 and 4s attend the Mind and Body Incurison. All students have benefited from the activities and it related perfectly to our integrated unit. The teachers could not talk highly enough about the experience. We will be using Supreme Incursions again!

Eltham East 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.
