The Lab

Half-Full Day to Explore the World of Chemical Sciences

In this incursion, students begin the day by developing science inquiry skills through undertaking a series of experiments that test the reactions, changes and behaviours in chemicals.
Working in teams, their enterprising mindsets are then engaged when they go into ‘The Lab’ to produce their own bath bomb, testing and choosing betweens colours, scents and designs.
Using their digital literacy skills, students will research and segment their bath bombs, and will then create branding and packaging for their products.
The day culminates in a showcase and presentation of each teams results and final products.

The Lab is an action packed day which links to the Chemical Sciences Unit. It is an enterprising program, with students developing key skills in teamwork, critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, financial literacy, digital literacy, communication and presentation skills.

Enterprise Education in Primary Schools Contributes to Critical Skill Development

The modern job market is a tough and competitive place, yet many young people entering this arena today do so without all the skills and assets they could use to succeed. As a result, enterprise education in primary schools continues to gain in popularity. Using tailored in school programs, our Mini BOSS entrepreneur classes for kids offer educators the opportunity to teach real-world skills in ways that allow children to understand their greater importance. These fun, creative enterprise education programs yield rich outcomes and foster teamwork, communication, and the skills employers want to see.

Mini BOSS enterprise education for kids pairs seamlessly with STEM programs in Melbourne alongside other schools using inquiry-based educational models. By mapping directly to the Victorian Curriculum, we can easily customise and tweak each of our incursions to directly correlate to the learning goals you work to achieve. From learning how to develop a business idea to hands-on fun such as creating unique bath bombs, every incursion delivers valuable skills acquisition in a way that will truly engage and excite your students.

Encourage Curiosity and Foster Deeper Learning Through Mini BOSS Science Incursions in Melbourne

How can you make your lessons feel real to your students? It’s a question many teachers struggle with, even those working in inquiry-based learning environments. Translating concepts into real-world applications is an essential part of preparing young minds for the world ahead. That’s why hands on science workshops, such as those delivered in Mini BOSS science incursions in Melbourne, provide such exciting opportunities for achieving broad learning goals.

We base these hands on science incursions on the principles of enterprise education, which focus on lessons for kids that incorporate skills such as teamwork, communication, problem-solving, and the basics of entrepreneurship. However, all our workshops adapt easily for schools of any kind, from STEM-focused curricula to other, more generalised approaches. Mini BOSS transforms our successful and unique incursions into experiences perfectly suited for primary school.

Students not only have the chance to reinforce their learning through science incursions in Melbourne but also to develop methods of thinking that make it simpler to link their classroom learning with real-life applications. By translating concepts into an actual experience, students gain valuable independence and begin to hone the ability to “self-start,” essential for achieving their own personal goals. All of this occurs in a framework of fun and exciting learning with their peers!
