Welcome to Science @ Manchester Primary School.
Here, we will be highlighting the school’s science activities, events and achievements. The weblog is also a bit of an experiment, so please let us know what else you would like to see on the site.
Current science activities include the lunchtime Science Club and participation in the CSIRO Scientists in Schools program. Our current partner scientist is Mark Beavis, an Astronomer and Planetary Scientist. Clint Heinze, an Aerospace Engineer and Computer Scientist, was our previous partner scientist.
