Science and Engineering Challenge

Found in: News

Today a group of Year 9 and 10 students were selected to represent St George's and compete in the annual Science and Engineering Challenge. 

Students were provided with some everyday challenges facing engineers and scientists and competed against other schools to come up with the most successful and innovative solutions. Some of the tasks included controlling power stations, building a bionic hand, constructing earthquake-proof towers, developing and decoding messages sent through fibre optics, building Mars rovers, constructing rail networks, making flat pack furniture and building a bridge to transport gold.

As always, our students worked extremely hard with some teams achieving great success. Every group had a lot of fun learning new skills and challenging themselves.

We are pleased to announce St Georges came 4th overall on the day. Congratulations, this is a fantastic result. Miss Donovan and Mr Lim are incredibly proud of the efforts put forward by our students.
