FOR the past seven years, a humble chook raffle run has funded CSIRO science workshops for 7000 students.
This has continued once again this year thanks to the hard work of Rotary Club of Orange members.
The workshops will run every day this week as a part of the club’s Sustainable Living Week.
Member David Williams said the main aim of the week and the workshops was to “improve the lives of the citizens of Orange”.
“It’s so important for children to learn at an age where they absorb everything,” Mr Williams said.
“It’s simple science they learn the most about and retain.”
Students demonstrated engagement and enthusiasm during the lessons as water pressure, air pressure and electric current was explained by CSIRO educators.
