KALLAROO school students embraced bugs during National Science Week.
Students from Springfield Primary School created a bug made from recycled materials as part of a school-wide competition.
Year 1 teacher Christine Bloomfield said they had to adhere to specific criteria and use problem solving to find alternatives for tape and glue.
“The school’s aim was to raise awareness of littering in a positive framework while also focusing on sustainability practices and the reduce, reuse, recycle message,” she said.
“The children enjoyed the hands-on, challenging task and this has culminated in a whole school science exhibit open to parents and the community, where the students also put together their bug displays in a creative forum.”
