Santos and Origin Big Rig Excursions

Middle Campus Year 5 and 6 students on silver and gold level were treated to an excursion to the Big Rig Industry Open Day. We were welcomed by many people from a variety of companies including Origin Energy, Santos, QMDC Rangers and MPC Kinetic. The students learned about Hydrogeology, earth science and fracking. They tested water samples from the local Roma area. With the help of the QMDC Rangers, students examined murky water, finding a variety of critters with the most fascinating being the yabby. Students also went inside a record-breaking pipe welding machine known as the Fast Fusion. Once all the exciting activities were over, the students received some free merchandise before leaving. Although it was very warm outside, the students, teacher aides and teachers had an excellent time and we appreciate the great work done by all the companies to set the day up for visitors!
