The theme of National Science Week 2019 is Destination Moon. QAGTC-West invites budding science students in Years 3-6, to conduct a real-life science experiment in a real-life science laboratory on the theme of keeping astronauts at a comfortable temperature on the Earth’s Moon. A prize will be awarded to the student with the best graph interpretation. Parents are welcome to observe in the lab.
Brisbane West Branch of the QAGTC invites you to attend an event focused on giftedness in early childhood (8 years and under). Experienced educators will form a panel to review issues related to young gifted children.
We all recognize the word, the look and the frustration but do we really understand what ‘boredom’ means or know how to respond to the phase “It’s boring!” when expressed by students. Parents, who are concerned about their child receiving adequate academic challenge, may be perceived as an affront by teachers who work hard to provide stimulating lessons for students. Is learning to deal with boredom an expected life skill or does the experience of boredom result in cognitive difficulties, academic underachievement and psychological difficulties?
