Two win new science awards
TWO Cottesloe Primary School students are among 28 of WA’s brightest young minds to win Woodside Scitech Science Awards.
Scitech launched its new awards at a special morning tea for students and parents last month.
Cottesloe Primary School students Sage Allen and Leonardo Alampi Sottini beat more than 2600 recipients to receive their awards. Scitech event co-ordinator Vanessa Baker said the graduating primary students demonstrated a passion for science.
“The Woodside Scitech Science Awards are given to four graduating Year 6 and 7 primary school students from each participating school,” she said.
“It’s a great opportunity to recognise students who have shown a curiosity about the world around them and a desire to experiment and investigate.
“We hope that through this award, students will be encouraged to continue studying science and go on to achieve great things.”
Each award recipient received a science book, an official certificate, a family day pass to Scitech and the planetarium, and a discounted subscription to the CSIRO Helix magazines.
