Wonders of Science Winners

8/10/2013

Some of our Year 8 and 9 students recently competed in the Wonder of Science program. The students showed exemplary behaviour and scientific knowledge and were great ambassadors of the school. The scientific judges (mostly PHD students) were very impressed with the calibre of their presentations and had asked the students to give them quick tutorials on presenting using Prezi. The students had to compete against other schools in the appropriate year level category.  All our students did a fantastic job and finished in the top four of their category. 

Our Year 8 teams had the challenging task of designing a Rube Goldberg Machine.  Congratulations to Team Harmeet, Gemma, Morgan and Kayleigh who finished second and Team Kyle, Connor, Thom and Zac who came fourth.  

Our Year 9 students had to design an experiment that tested changing salinity levels in ecosystems.  Results were very close with Team 2 consisting of Shaun, Jarrod, Cody and Kaylee finishing second and Team 1, consisting of Kate, Olivia, Brittany and Reece, claiming the Champions Title, winning the grand prize of a $5000 resource pack full of science resources for our school.
