National Science Week is Australia’s annual celebration of science and technology, running each year in August. By the Will of Allah SWT man has penetrated the near regions of the heavens by travelling to the moon and back on several occasions.
Over 1400 years ago Allah SWT revealed in the Quran;
“O Company of jinn and men, if ye have power to penetrate (all) regions of the heavens and the earth, then penetrate (them)! Ye will never penetrate them save with (our) Sanction” (Quran 55:33).
‘Destination Moon: more missions, more science’ is the school theme for National Science Week in 2019. This is an important theme for teachers and their students to discover and investigate not only past space programs and missions to the Moon, but also the new and innovative space programs, operations and missions of today, and those planned for the future.
Through this learning experience the Pre-Primary students were challenged to investigate the rockets that put humans into space and on the Moon. They designed, engineered and built a model rocket.
The Pre-Primary students also tried a number of science activities combining literacy, science and stem. They asked some scientific questions, creating and exploring how rockets are built and launched as well as discovering some fantastic facts about rockets.
