The Science of Super Heroes is one of Quantum Victoria’s FREE Expanding Horizons State-Wide Student Experiences for Year 9/10s

Aim high!

The Archer’s capabilities and precision ensures that she never misses a target! Students investigate projectile motion through a series of experiments and use the knowledge acquired to test their Super Hero prowess and compare it to The Archer’s, by firing projectiles at a moving target.

Bioengineering

Exposure to electromagnetic radiation (EMR) and injection of radioactive particles has the potential to change a person’s DNA. Students investigate the super human characteristics identified in a gene that scientists isolated from individuals exposed to EMR and injected with radioactive particles. A study of the characteristics of the 3 different alleles for each gene is undertaken, before deciding which allele would create the ‘best’ augmented human. Students also learn about genetic engineering.

Suit up!

Students investigate the technological genius of a protective suit that gives superhuman characteristics to any individual that wears it. The suit provides near complete protection for the wearer, able to absorb and disperse energy during a range of collisions. Students produce a prototype that will be put to the ultimate test!
