The April 2019 school holiday workshops were held at Guildford Grammar Preparatory School. Over four half day sessions, students were involved in a variety of fun yet challenging hands on activities that met the aims of the program including encouraging intellectual risk taking and embracement of failures as a part of the learning process. Well done all who participated.

Young Engineers

As one famous engineer once said, “Failure is central to engineering. Every single calculation that an engineer makes is a failure calculation. Successful engineering is all about understanding how things break or fail.” In this workshop we put the skills of each individual to the test where they planned and built a bridge and tested the model for strength and stability. The workshop brought together like minded students who enhanced each other’s learning.

Chess Masters

“Every chess master was once a beginner.” Students received instruction on how to play and had fun exploring the fundamentals of chess including openings, strategies and tactics that the professionals use. Plenty of time was given to play some friendlies too. Learning to play chess is a great way to help develop concentration, memory, self-esteem and the ability to collaborate and interact with others.

Young Doctors – Circulatory System

This was truly a workshop like no other. How many places on your body can you measure your heart rate? What does a real heart look like… inside? This workshop included circulatory system theory, heart structure and function, measuring heart rate and a real heart dissection. Guided by Mr Slater and Nurse Jules, students explored the human body like never before which developed practical dissection skills for the development of anatomical knowledge and fostered critical and creative thinking.

Young Doctors – Nervous System

Another one of our unique workshops which was sure to excite the aspiring doctors out there. Students explored how their brain works and tested their reflexes in this amazing workshop that tingled their senses! We delved into nervous system theory, eye structure and function, Blue Field Entoptic Phenomenon and even took a look at our own blind spots. We also made time to conduct a challenging eye dissection. Guided by Mr Slater and Nurse Jules, students explored the human body like never before which developed practical dissection skills for the development of anatomical knowledge and fostered critical and creative thinking.
