Through MSchool, Quantal Bioscience is on a mission

to exhilarate and to supercharge the way students and teachers experience science inquiry and practice

MSchool Purpose

Those that do, teach

Master Science

MSchool Curriculum Supercharger Programs

Our MSchool programs support teachers and schools to supercharge delivery of curricula that emphasise inquiry-based learning, working scientifically skills, investigation-led science and STEM. Teachers of all Stages can access real science knowledge and skill support through our Microbiology in Depth, Communities 4 and Microbial Living World programs.

 

Microbiology in Depth (MiD)

Supercharging BIO & IS Depth Studies for Stage 6

Antimicrobial Resistance in Depth (AMRiD) for Stage 6 Biology 

Pseudomonas & Cystic Fibrosis in Depth (PCFiD) for Stage 6 Biology 

Microbial Stress Response in Depth (MSRiD) for Stage 6 Investigating Science 

 

Communities 4 (C4)

Supercharging Working Scientifically for Stage 5

Communities for Antimicrobial Discovery (C4AD)

Communities for Bioelectrogen Discovery (C4BD)

Communities for Choose Your Own Discovery (C4CD)

Communities for Extremophile Discovery (C4ED)

 

Microbial Living World (MLW)

Supercharging the Living World for Stages 1 - 4

Stage 1 Microbial Living World Programs

Stage 2 Microbial Living World Programs

Stage 3 Microbial Living World Programs

Stage 4 Microbial Living World Programs

MSchool Co-Curricular Programs 

We're scientists who love to share our passion for science with students of all ages. Microbiology is a science that is immediately engaging for students; a whole world we cannot see, but one that is all around us, on us and in us each and every day. Students never fail to be captured by the adventure in that idea. And microbiology is a wonderful context for experiencing Science for Real, drawing upon biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics, engineering and technology to understand the world and address the challenges of the present and the future.

 

After School Research Collaboratives

K - 12 Students Work With Our Real Scientists

Our MSchool after school science programs run for a 9 week term, once a week on a

Monday (commencing 1st Feb) or Tuesday (commencing 2nd Feb) in Term 1 2021.

 

Our Mastering Science collaborative (MSc) & Budding Scientists collaborative (BSc) programs

are one and a half hour programs ($608 incl. GST per term),

while our microADVENTURES collaborative (mAc) program,

recommended for our youngest science students is a

one hour program ($431 incl. GST per term).

 

Our research area for Term 1 2021, across all of our programs is Aspergillus oryzae, a fascinating mould used to produce a range of fermented products, including miso, amizake and sake.  

In Term 1 we'll be working with all of our students to map the growth limits of Aspergillus oryzae,

in particular, as a function of temperature and salt concentration,

to model Aspergillus oryzae growth rates in response to changes in the levels of these variables,

and to observe phenotypic changes that occur in the mould under different growth conditions.

 

All of our MSchool after school programs are held in our MSchool Lab @

The King's School Science Centre, 87 - 129 Pennant Hills Rd North Parramatta.

AUTUMN MSCHOOL

FERMENTATION

Tue 6th - Fri 9th April 2021

 

Four big days of science working with the Quantal team!

Multi-tiered Science for K - 12 Students

Over 4 days, students from K - Year 12 will work with our scientists in ability-appropriate TEAMS to MEET the MICROBES involved in FERMENTATION, and LEARN about all the different types of FERMENTATION PROCESSES, and then to APPLY their knowledge and skills to the DEVELOPMENT and OPTIMISATION of a unique FERMENTATION PROCESS of their own, constructing HYPOTHESES and WORKING SCIENTIFICALLY to COLLECT, ANALYSE and PRESENT their DATA throughout, and ultimately be crowned our fermentation champions!  

 

Can't make it for the whole 4 days?

 

This school holidays, we're also offering an AUTUMN MSCHOOL FERMENTATION TASTER for 1 day only, Tue 6th April, where day students will be able to join our fermentation teams at the start of their scientific journey.

 

Or, for something really different, join us for our ART OF FERMENTATION 1 day workshop on Fri 9th April, where we'll work together to try and capture and express the beauty of FERMENTATION PROCESSES and MICROBIAL GROWTH through a variety of ARTISTIC MEDIA. 

 

Limited places - 100% refundable in the case of disruption by COVID-19.

8.30 am for 8.45 am - 4 pm each day

MSchool News...

We've had a busy start to 2021!

 

QUANTAL'S SCIENTISTS ARE NOW USING NANOPORE SEQUENCING

IN THEIR RESEARCH - AND YOU CAN TOO!

 

MSchool is the first and only place in Australia teaching hands-on nanopore sequencing to school students! 

 

Check out this video to watch nanopore sequencing in action.  

 


 

 

Quantal Bioscience, our research laboratory

and our MSchool laboratory are co-located

in The King's School Science Centre at

North Parramatta, Sydney, Australia. 

Since our start in 2015 Quantal Bioscience has been proud to be a partner with The King's School in The Future Project, a unique program motivating and engaging the next generation of scientists and engineers.

 

In 2021, Quantal Bioscience is proud to join forces with the Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta and others in

Project M.E.T.A. - Mars Exploration Technology Analogues.
