MAY the fourth saw Jedi, robots, Chewbacca, Princess Leia and other Star Wars characters exploring science realms at a Joondalup school.
Lake Joondalup Baptist College held the theme day to coincide with its STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) day on May 4.
Students from kindergarten to Year 12 participated in a range of activities as well as presentations by astrophysicist Alan Duffy and neuroscientist Lyn Beazley.
Principal Dawn Clements said the professors were “inspiring and engaging” while working with the Year 9 students, who worked as teams to solve STEM problems.
“Both Alan Duffy and Lyn Beazley were remarkable in their passion to encourage innovative thinking to benefit humankind that future studies in STEM will generate,” she said.
Students from early learning to Year 12 classes dressed up and participated in fundraising activities.
Head boy Zac Oosthuizen, head girl Emily Scott and the student council steered the fundraising effort, which included selling Hutt dogs and Yoda sodas to raise money for the Salvation Army.
