Introductory Year events

We would like to extend a huge welcome to our 'Introductory Year' Brilliant Futures families, who joined us for the Induction Ceremony on Tuesday 25 February. 

As a precursor to the ceremony, our BF Introductory year students were able to experience our science labs for the first time. During their Science Lab Workshop, students conducted a hands-on experiment with the aim of finding gold reserves by using a variety of scientific testing methods. 

Students also joined us again last Saturday afternoon to take part in a Collaborative Learning and Global Thinking workshop. This allowed students to practice their critical thinking and problem solving skills whilst getting to know and work collaboratively with other Brilliant Futures students.

Our talented Queensland Academy faculty staff facilitated these workshops with the aid our dedicated year 11 STEM Mentor team.

Investigative Year – Wind turbine workshop

Our 'Investigative Year' Brilliant Futures students were recently given the opportunity to actively participate in a Wind Turbine Workshop facilitated by Darren Shepherd, Principal of the Toohey Forest Environmental Education Centre. We are looking to our upcoming excursion to the Environmental Centre at the Griffith University Nathan Campus where students will participate in an on-site ecology workshop.

Inquiry Year - QUT Coding the Solar System 

Our 'Inquiry Year' students recently visited the QUT Garden's Point Engineering Cube, where they worked together to create an orbiting robotic solar system by coding their own Sphero robotic planet.

 "The workshop was fun and I learnt a lot from coding spheros and create a solar system. A wonderful experience!" 

"An amazing interactive experience to learn about astrophysics."  

"A challenging, yet fun way to learn about the physics of the universe."
