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
