House of Science
COMMUNITY DEVELOMENT FUND $20,000
Resourcing and connecting the local science community to celebrate the power and potential of science is a key aim for the House of Science. Their work to enrich science education across the community has resulted in an increase in the number of students engaged in science at secondary schools in the Western Bay.
TECT has funded the transportation of Science Resource Kits to and from schools across the district. Each week an average of 26 kits are delivered to schools meaning over 500 kids are doing hands on science. House of Science also offer children’s programmes, teacher PD, one off special events, science tutoring, and conferences.
A key success in the past 12 months includes competing at VEX robotic nationals in March.
