Curious students at Dunsborough Primary School this week connected with the ocean and new technologies as part of Australia’s National Science Week.

This year’s theme was Deep Blue: innovations for the future of our oceans and encouraged students to embrace the capabilities and skills needed to achieve sustainability for our oceans.

Dunsborough Primary School principal Garry Jones said activities included watching science cinema films in the library, designing and building sea creatures, and a science scavenger hunt.

“The two girls (pictured) created a project for the Science Talent Quest which will be sent in to be part of a WA science talent competition,” Mr Jones said.

Dunsborough Primary School year three teacher Anna Baker said the school was always willing to participate with a range of activities.

The dedicated week was established more than 20 years ago to provide recognition for Australian scientists.
