Our students are back in the science labs and this means they are back developing their scientific practical skills. Our year 12 Environmental Science class explored sustainable energy. They developed an understanding of the importance of meeting today’s energy needs by not depleting the resources for future generations. Sustainable energy often creates little harm to the environment and once set up can be a low-cost option. Students explored creating electricity from wind. There are many… Read More

The practical component of Science is often the most appealing part for students. They get to use equipment that is unfamiliar and it allows them to gain a deeper understanding of the theory taught. Our year 7 students have been learning about separation techniques used in laboratories, desalination plants, sewage… Read More

Our students are settling into their Science classes for the year as they busily experiment, investigate, observe and explore the world around them.    In Year 11 Psychology, students have applied their knowledge of the human brain to construct play-dough models. Once developed, their brains received damage to the lobes and association areas. Students then predicted the likely behaviour of their patient after injury.     Recently, our… Read More

A huge welcome to all of our students as we begin another exciting year at Mooroolbark College. We look forward to spending many lessons together exploring and experimenting to find out how the universe works. Our Year 7 students have already begun by transforming into detectives as they investigate the… Read More

Remote Learning in Science has provided our students with the opportunity to explore their own environment at home. Not only have they visited local waterways to examine the organisms found in ecosystems, they have also looked closely within the own backyards at the species which may be found there.  Some students have been exploring their… Read More
