Museum Stem Excursion

The top pathway year 9 Mathematics students had the opportunity to attend the Ancient Civilisations- Roman Empire exhibit at the Great Southern Museum, Albany.  A total of 41 students participated over 2 days on the 17th and 20th of June

The students learnt how pulley’s worked and how the Romans built bridges and roads. 

They played the Mathematics strategy game of Rota and learnt about the roman defences and engineering feats. 

The students also solved problems relating to using an abacus and learnt how the romans knew the time using a water clock and sun dial.

A fantastic group of students who consistantly displayed the NASHS values during the two day event.

Thankyou Mr Bishop for driving the bus. Well done 9.1 and 9.4 Mathematics class!
