Scouts Tonight is Bring a Friend / Team Building / Proficiency Badges. BRING YOUR GREEN BOOK. PARENT HELPERS NEEDED.

We have 30+ Scouts on the books at the moment and 4 leaders, so if you're bringing a friend tonight, expect a packed Scout Hall !

We really need to concentrate on badge work tonight, especially for those heading to Jamboree in January 2016. I propose we have a MEGA BADGE NIGHT tonight. PARENT HELPERS NEEDED!!!

If you know first aid, please stay and help with First Aid badge work.

If you know about knots and construction, please stay and help.

Scouts: There will be time to make a presentation to your patrol for the proficiency badge you are working on.

I want to see everyone working hard, getting things signed off tonight. Let's see how many badges can be achieved tonight if we all work hard.

Don't worry, there will still be time for a few games!

See you all tonight.

Media Release

Spin yourself until you’re dizzy, compare your reflexes to a Formula 1 driver and see your fingertips under the microscope with the Shell Questacon Science Circus.

St Joseph’s College Stadium will be overflowing with exciting hands-on science exhibits on Saturday 22 August when the Science Circus and their colourful semi-trailer roll into town for a public exhibition of their ‘pop-up’ science centre.

Visitors of all ages can enjoy over 40 interactive science exhibits and watch spectacular science shows as Science Circus presenters hold fire in their hands, lie on a bed of nails and levitate beach balls.

“Our exhibition is a fantastic opportunity for the whole community to get hands-on with science. It’s a great way to discover new things about our world and explore the science and technology all around us,” said Science Circus presenter Charlotte Fletcher.

The team is visiting local schools throughout the Mildura region this week, sharing flying rockets, freezing cold liquid nitrogen and gooey slime with students through a range of interactive science shows.

“We hope that many of the students we’ve visited in schools will bring their families along to the public exhibition, to explore science together and with the rest of the community,” said Charlotte.

The Science Circus is comprised of 15 postgraduate students studying a Master of Science Communication Outreach at The Australian National University. The students spend three months of the year visiting communities all over Australia to engage people with science and technology.

This year, the Science Circus is celebrating 30 years on the road. Since 1985, the Science Circus has inspired over 2.2 million people with multiple visits to over 500 towns and communities, including 90 remote Indigenous communities, with interactive science demonstrations.

The Shell Questacon Science Circus is a proud initiative of Shell, The Australian National University and Questacon – The National Science and Technology Centre.
