Event description

Join Catherine Lee (Director of The Point Preschool, Oyster Bay) to hear about the inquiry-based learning project “The Spectacular Find” which was recognised as the NSW State Winner of the 2022 Little Scientists Early STEM Award! Finding a coral skeleton from the Great Barrier Reef in their sand pit sparked a project of scientific discovery and even led to the making of a movie and production of a musical!

The children:

· researched and acknowledged the Traditional Custodians of the reef;

· estimated the reef’s length and explored maps;

· made observational drawings and clay sculptures;

· investigated the coral through a microscope;

· photographed the coral;

· listened to sounds of living coral;

· designed the reef with loose parts;

· researched threats to the reef;

· searched for solutions, planned and constructed models of inventions to save the reef;

· engaged in song writing, movie making and performing “The Spectacular Find Saving the Great Barrier Reef – The Musical” to share joy of their discovery.
