Science Week Sci-Ku One – Grey

-Users-KatApel-Desktop-Screenshots 2015-08-17 at 9.17.46 amIt’s National Science Week in Australia. The Royal Institute of Australia’s Science Channel is running a Sci-Ku competition, closing Sunday, 23 August. Sci-ku is a really cool name for a science-based haiku (Love it!) and entries need to reflect the theme, ‘Making waves – the science of light’.

There are three categories: Primary, Secondary & Open (no age limit – so jump on board teachers!)

Details can be found on the RIAS website; Follow the entry guidelines link for all you need to know about writing sci-ku. (Teachers, that definition of haiku is EXCELLENT (!) so click across and read it.)


Sci-ku is a short and snappy way to celebrate Science AND Literacy. I’m encouraging students and teachers to take the challenge.

Will you?

PS I have no involvement with the RiAus – and I’m not very scientific about light! I just think this is a lot of fun, and worth spruiking about.
