Registration is closed

During the Masterclass you will be shown how you can teach dozens of curriculum outcomes in a way your students will love!

Delivered by The Foundation of Educational Digital Development and It’s Rocket Science Adventures, qualified science educators will provide Teachers the rare opportunity to experience the exciting field of rocketry, with Teachers conducting experiments - not just observing a demonstration.

Australia's only water rocket specialists will offer a variety of exhilarating and exclusive water rocket adventures, cross-pollinating STEM subjects, allowing Teachers to escape the mundane and be empowered in a real-world environment. This workshop will make rocket science fun and achievable. Teachers will be motivated with the thrill of building and flying bottle rockets filled with compressed air and water, over 50 metres into the air!

This action-packed adventure will help inspire curiosity, bring the wonder of discovery and the exploration of the science behind rockets, flight and space into the classroom. The program offered is specifically mapped to the STEM Australian Curriculum.

The innovative projects will build your confidence and understanding in HOW TO implement programs in the classroom to improve skills outcomes and ongoing student STEM engagement.

Masterclass Content

It’s Rocket Science Adventures will take Teachers through two fully interactive project based workshops:

  • “Go for Altitude”, and
  • “Rocket Race Cars”, all-weather option.

The aim of each program is to provide a live extension to the classroom, where your students can be challenged in a real-world environment to create, predict, observe and evaluate the performance of their individual rocket.

It’s Rocket Science Adventures emphasise that science can be better understood through its practice.
