Science is offered as a specialist subject at Jingili Primary School.
​At Jingili Primary School we aim to:​
  • Build a solid knowledge foundation of the Biological, Chemical, Physical, Earth and space sciences and to use that scientific knowledge and methods needed to explain and predict phenomena.
  • Provide students with an opportunity to develop an interest in Science by expanding their curiosity and willingness to explore, ask questions and speculate about the world in which they live.
  • Understand the nature of scientific inquiry and the ability to use a range of scientific inquiry methods with students.
  • Develop students’ abilities to communicate scientific understandings and findings to a range of audiences, justifying their ideas and participating in scientific arguments and claims.

Each year we hold our Science Expo and Science Fair.  This is a wonderful opportunity for students to learn and participate in a range of different science experiences and experiments, please see our Gallery for photos.


Winner of the 2022 Northern Territory Science Week Award

The annual Jingili Science Expo was held in August, 2022 in the Northern Territory with 21 stall holders demonstrating how Science can be applied outside the classroom. Over 300 students had the opportunity to explore fun and engaging activities. One of the activities was experiencing augmented reality with CSER Project Officer Sue Carter.

On display were Curiscope Virtuali-Tee shirts providing an experience to see inside the human body. Using the free app and a t-shirt, students could see what happens beneath their skin with lungs breathing, heart beating and blood flowing. Students were able to explore the Digestive, Respiratory, Skeletal, Renal and Circulatory Systems. 

Rakugaki is a new app designed to make 2D drawings transform into 3D objects that move through virtual space. The app can recognise the head, body, arms and legs from drawn images and assign bones and joints. This creates an experience as if drawings have come to life. At the expo students used the Magical Builders characters and watched them dance around in virtual space.

Quiver is another AR app that makes learning fun by combining a physical image with moving augmented reality to create an engaging, educational and magical experience. Students were able to use their imagination to create unique stain glass window designs and animate their images.
