Young­sters put brains to the test

Central and North Burnett Times - - EDUCATION -

STU­DENTS from across the re­gion met at Martin Love Oval in Mun­dub­bera for the first North Bur­nett Brain Bash (NB3) re­cently.

The Brain Bash in­volved a day of creative think­ing and prob­lem solv­ing for chil­dren in Years 4-6.

Forty-two stu­dents par­tic­i­pated in 10 teams from seven schools in the North Bur­nett.

The Brain Bash aims to in­crease the fo­cus on stu­dents who are iden­ti­fied as Gifted and Tal­ented and those who will ben­e­fit from ex­ten­sion ac­tiv­i­ties.

By pro­vid­ing th­ese chil­dren with a va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties, it is hoped they can ex­plore ar­eas that they are good at.

There will be an­other brain bash next term for stu­dents in Years 7-9.
