We will be offering the following four subjects in Semester 1:

Subject descriptions can be found by clicking on each subject link and in coming weeks we will have some short videos from teachers explaining each of the subjects in a little more detail.  We are also working on some exciting new subjects and offering for Semester 2.

Ahead of accepting formal registrations we have created an Expression of Interest form for semester 1 which I invite you to complete if you have or believe students will be interested.
We are currently proposing that semester 1 lessons will begin from the 13th of February 2017 and conclude on the 9th of June 2017.  We will once again be running teacher only sessions in the week beginning 6 February 2017.
Semester 2 is proposed to start on the 24th of July and run to the 17th of November.  While these dates are unlikely to change we will lock them in over the coming two weeks.
We will have additional promotional material and information for you to circulate to students and parents in the next two weeks ahead of the formal registration process opening at the end of November.
Please do not hesitate to contact us via enquiries@emsci.vic.edu.au if you would like some additional information or discuss any elements of this email further.

John Monash Science School is holding their 2016 Science Fair on Monday 24 October 2016 from 6pm to 8.30pm.  Students will be displaying their year long science research projects, outcomes of their emerging science electives in addition to demonstrating the numerous STEM engagement programs used by the school.

Dr Duncan Galloway from Physics and Astronomy at Monash University is our guest speaker for the evening.
