Science: Deeper Learning Day
Recently, Year 8 at The Douay Martyrs Catholic Secondary School were given the opportunity to develop a deeper insight into Science and the Cosmetic World. Students worked in small groups, with each student having an active role in the planning and production of three cosmetic products; soaps, lip balm and bath bombs. Students were then tasked with the preparation and presentation of a pitch about their product to the rest of the class. All of this was done to a set deadline – placing the students directly in a Careers-related context. Furthermore, the students also learnt about the advantages and disadvantages of being an entrepreneur.
This was a great day for Year 8, and it was brilliant seeing all of their hard work and commitment,
