Over the past two weeks, a team of 22 enthusiastic Year 9 and 10 students attended the Science and Engineering Challenge at the University of Tasmania.
The Science and Engineering Challenge is an exhilarating day where schools compete against each other in a variety of fun and engaging hands-on activities.
Students put their problem-solving and engineering skills to the test as they built earthquake-proof towers, Mars rovers and bridges, designed communications using light, and brainstormed ways to effectively power cities.
Although the team did not come home with the win, students approached each task with focus and determination, demonstrating exceptional teamwork, communication and problem-solving skills. We were extremely proud of their efforts.
