Go Cats!

Published: 21/10/2020

The team at Bisinella Developments would like to congratulate the Geelong Football Club on their big win on the weekend and their successful season so far. We wish them all the best in Saturday’s Grand Final against Richmond.

Bisinella is a proud supporter of the Geelong Football Club, sponsoring the club’s school program BioCATS since 2015.  BioCATS is an experiential learning program for primary school students. The fun, interactive program gives students the opportunity to go into the inner sanctum of the Geelong Cats where they learn about the science, mathematics and health benefits of sport participation, including football.

Bisinella will return as sponsor of BioCATS when the program kicks-off again in 2021.

During lockdown, primary school students across the Geelong region were able to watch their beloved Geelong Cats in action, while learning valuable maths and science skills.

The one-day BioCATS program is usually run by BioLAB as a hands-on educational excursion at the Deakin Cats Community Centre located at the GMHBA Stadium. In response to the COVID-19 restrictions it was tailored for remote and class-room based learning.

Resources included BioCATS Stats Crunch with Patrick Dangerfield. The maths challenge is aimed at Grade 5/6 student and allows them to become sports statisticians for the day. The program gave students the chance to use their maths skills to analyse the performance of Geelong Cat Patrick Dangerfield.

BioCATS was designed in 2012 by BioLAB: The Victorian BioScience Education Centre in partnership with the Geelong Football Club.

Since then, almost 12,000 Grade Five and Six school students from Geelong and beyond have taken part in the program which introduces thousands of primary school students across the state to the science and maths of football.
