Science on the Go!

On Tuesday 31 May, 30 students from Years 5 and 6 competed in the Science on the Go! Challenge at Park Ridge State High School. Griffith University hosted the Primary school Science and Engineering Challenges. Overall, eight schools competed and we are proud to announce that our students came 4th overall.

The Science and Engineering Challenges were developed by the University of Newcastle to inspire young people, through fun and practical hands-on activities, about current and future opportunities available in STEM. 

Our students presented themselves beautifully and were rather competitive in nature. Activities included the design and construction of a bionic hand, a buggy to transport loads securely on Mars, creation of a model turbine, discovery of efficient pathways for sustainable electricity and much more. Well done to all of our students who worked collaboratively to solve real-world problems and supported the engagement of the STEM disciplines.
