Griffith Sciences' globally recognised research achievements transcend into learning and teaching strategies. Acclaimed scientists across various expertise provide a knowledge platform from which successful graduates glean from, and in turn become future professionals of influence.
Productive engagement activities and initiatives with schools, and throughout the wider community, are designed to advise and encourage our potential students into study paths that will assure future employment opportunities.
Griffith Scouts STEM experience day
We are launching a Griffith Scouts STEM Experience day to help scouts understand Science and engage with their Award Scheme in a more interesting and interactive way. For this launch we are looking for Patrol Leaders and Assistant Patrol Leaders from the Scout section.
In this activity scouts will be looking at and gaining a better understanding of the water they drink. We will be analysing Brisbane tap water for Fluoride, Iron, Water Hardness and Salinity. Some of the techniques the scouts will employ to make their observation will include: colorimetric testing with the use of UV Spectrometers, titrations, indicative color test to show the presence of dissolved salts, pH to determine the acidity or alkalinity of the sample, electrical conductivity to test the amount of dissolved salts and flame photometry to measure metal salts such as sodium and calcium.
Griffith Sciences offers remarkable opportunities for high school students to experience STEM (Science, technology, engineering and maths ) within a highly interactive environment. School outreach activities provide exclusive hands-on experiences which will be thoroughly appreciated by students. You can arrange a visit during single or multiple lesson times, choose activities based on relevant units being studied, or request a presentation to learn more about exciting career pathways.
From laboratory tours, field experience days, campus visits, challenges and activities; the opportunities are endless! We can even come to your school, bringing the experience directly into your own classrooms. Contact us now and we’ll be happy to tailor a program to your needs.
