The Science Roadshow is a mobile science discovery centre. Annually, it travels the length of New Zealand in a 15 metre truck and trailer, bringing a range of cool interactive science and technology exhibits into communities. All Year 9 classes experienced the Roadshow yesterday.
Last Wednesday the Year 10 Music students went to Ferrymead to visit the recording studio, Orange Studios. The girls had the opportunity to take a tour of the studio, operate the sound desk and perform a piece to be recorded. An enjoyable activity was manipulating their voices to sound very low or extremely high like a chipmunk. An interactive and fun day for all.
The Yr 10 Economics classes visited the University of Canterbury's Commerce Department for a taste of Economics in Action. Almost 100 girls learned through a variety of activities that you have to 'listen and believe in the process' if you want to make it in the commercial world.
