School engages with science from a creationist perspective

VOLCANOES will erupt and the issue of global warming will be explored when Hervey Bay Christian Academy hosts its Science Fair on June 6.

Principal Steven Sauvageot said the school engaged with science from a creationist perspective rather than an evolutionary one, following Biblical teachings.

That meant when the students were studying an issue such as global warming, the school would teach from the perspective of thousands of years of human existence, not millions, he said.

The event also celebrates Queensland Day.

Mr Sauvageot said he hoped it would be a great way to encourage students to engage in science.

He said the fair was a great chance for the community to visit the school and get involved with what the students are doing.

"They will be looking at volcanoes, at the effects of soft drink on the human body and the senior students are looking at global warming," Mr Sauvageot said.

The displays starts at 11.15am and will finish with a science stage show for all ages.

The day includes a sausage sizzle along with a tour of the school.

All funds raised will go towards new science resources for the school and all are welcome.
