Science boost for Moorditj Noongar College

Midland MLA Michelle Roberts has welcomed the news that Moorditj Noongar College will receive a funding grant of $10,000 to boost their science resources.

Moorditj Noongar College is one of the state’s small public primary schools that will receive funding from the McGowan Government to equip their schools with much-needed science equipment for their classrooms such as telescopes, salinity testing kits, raised garden beds, lego kits, solar / photovoltaic cell kits and petri dishes.

Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) skills help to prepare students for jobs into the future and having science resources in their classrooms will assist students in problem solving, critical analysis, initiative, communication and teamwork.

By giving students the appropriate resources in their classrooms Ms Roberts said she hoped to ignite an interest in science. 

These resources will assist teachers in delivering STEM subjects in an innovative way to encourage independent thinking.

Ms Roberts said the grants would help the school grow its science program and enable the school to purchase modern classroom equipment.

“The McGowan Government wants to ignite an interest in science in students from a young age and I’m sure this grant will help getting students excited about science.” she said.
