Victorian Challenge and Enrichment Event

This Term in Science students from 5/6I and the Marine Ambassadors participated in an online Victorian Challenge and Enrichment Event.

They explored the issue of plastics in our oceans and were introduced to bioplastics, an innovation to combat Ocean Sustainability.

Students worked in teams to make a simple bioplastic using gelatin, glycerine and water.

They used household substances such as liquid soap, dishwashing liquid and vinegar to test their effect on the bioplastic.

Students did a great job and really enjoyed the experience
