MADDINGTON Primary School got their hands dirty as part of National Science Week.

As part of the week, the school had multiple activities running including a sherbet factory, microscope wonders, flying machines, lava lamp making as well as rocket balloons and robots.

The school also had displays of student work including a display of earthquakes and volcanoes.

The school received a National Science Week grant and the money was used to purchase materials and equipment to run the stations during the week.

Maddington Primary School combined with Maddington Education Support Centre so that all students could experience a variety of hands on activities as well as spark their interest in science.
