Junior Saturday Club for Term 4 will focus on the theme of Biological Sciences and culminate with a joint Christmas Electronics session. The biology program will be delivered by the Why Waite? team from the Adelaide Universities Waite Campus. The three sessions will serve to expand agricultural processes, plant structure and biology and flavor and aroma. The participants can expect to grow their knowledge and vocabulary associated with biological sciences.
Intermediate (8-12 Yr)
Intermediate Saturday Club for Term 4 will focus on the theme of Medicine and culminate with a joint Christmas Electronics session.
(NB this is a 3 session term there is no 27 Oct 18 session). The two medical sessions will be delivered by two very senior medical doctors who specialize in unique environmental areas the first being space and the second underwater. The participants can expect to grow their medical knowledge, central issues to the physiology of being a human in these two extreme environments.
