Post-Earth Pioneers Update

Year 7 students met with Dr Eriita Jones today as part of their project “Post-Earth Pioneers”. Based in Adelaide, Dr Eriita Jones is a planetary and space scientist who studies potentially habitable environments on Mars. She spoke to us about the requirements for life beyond our planet, and also her journey from school to where she is today. Some groups then spoke to her about their project so far and asked her questions. She was a fascinating guest speaker and our Year 7 students loved hearing from an Australian space scientist!

As part of the Post Earth Pioneers project some Year 7 students have chosen to learn 3D animation skills with Block 42. This is a creative way to demonstrate the design of their interplanetary base.
