OCEAN Road Primary School’s Young Einsteins (Years 5 and 6 science extension program) travelled to Perth for an educational workshop – Researchers to the Rescue at the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research.

Young Einstein students learned about Biomedic Engineering and the workshop provided them with a unique experience of applying and further developing their knowledge and taking part in methods of discovery in the field.

Students were immersed into the world of science through a fun investigation centred around a researcher’s world.

The hands-on experience provided them with the chance to work with a range of science equipment including micropipettes, USB microscopes and microscopes.

They analysed DNA and had to solve a mystery using the equipment at their disposal and applying their scientific knowledge.

The excursion received grant funding from the Australian Government.
