On Tuesday 16 March, students in Year 10 participated in the Science and Engineering Challenge.
In teams of four, the girls competed in numerous events testing their engineering and problem-solving skills against seven other teams.
Challenges included designing and building a hovercraft, earthquake proof towers, hydroelectric turbines and a bridge.
The students did exceptionally well, finishing second on the day.
A particular highlight was the bridge designed by Estella Edwards, Shreeya Bisht, Nandhini Ramanathan and Sonia De Cesare.
The students’ bridge was the strongest made, while also being the lightest, earning them maximum points on that challenge.
