Jonathon rises to chal­lenge

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -

MORE than 20 schools com­peted in the an­nual Scitech Brain­storm Chal­lenge Days in May but it was Wes­ley Col­lege’s Jonathon Parker who stood out among the crowd when he won the physics prize.

Com­pet­ing stu­dents were put through a series of prob­lem-solv­ing chal­lenges in sci­ence, tech­nol­ogy, engi­neer­ing and maths.

Jonathon was awarded the physics prize af­ter nail­ing his chal­lenge.

“It was won­der­ful to see all the stu­dents get re­ally ex­cited to chal­lenge them­selves in new sit­u­a­tions, prob­lem-solve through team­work and come up with cre­ative so­lu­tions,” Scitech brain­storm chal­lenge day co-or­di­na­tor Tara Broad­hurst said.

Scitech’s Brain­storm Chal­lenge Day events run an­nu­ally for gifted and tal­ented pri­mary and se­condary stu­dents and PEAC groups across Western Aus­tralia.
