For the third year running, Head of STEM Mr Andy Draper organised the showcase for students to uncover the science and engineering behind the bonnets.
"The enthusiasm for machines is infectious," Mr Draper said. "This is reflected in our students' interest in so many of the visiting vehicles from the past couple of years."
The girls were mesmerised by the gizmos and gadgets, and learned about how solar energy is obtained to power the electric competition vehicles known as solar racers.
The future of Australia’s solar power will be bright if Dr Thompson’s Year 9 STEM students have anything to do with it.
Our Year 8 Science classes have been learning about electrical circuits and energy sources by building the ‘Ultimate Solar Racer’.
Junior School Science Day last Thursday was a riot of stimulating scientific experiments as students explored gases, force, gravity and air pressure. There were exploding balloons, whizzing rockets an ...
