Students brew up a brainstorm
PRIMARY School students from across WA learnt that two heads are better than one at Scitech’s Brainstorm Challenge Days.
School groups met each day for fun activities and problem solving that challenged their knowledge in the areas of science, technology, engineering and maths during the week-long event from October 19 to 23.
The overall winner of the Challenge Days was a team from Mt Hawthorn Primary School, with Floreat Park Primary School coming second and third place going to another Mt Hawthorn Primary School team.
Scitech Brainstorm Challenge Days co-ordinator Angie Kara said the challenge was popular with students and teachers alike.
“It’s wonderful to see all the students challenge themselves in new situations, problem-solve through effective teamwork and come up with some really creative solutions to a question or problem,” Ms Kara said.
“These challenges are so exciting for the students and gives them a chance to learn science in a hands-on environment created especially for them.
“It’s also great at bringing together wider school communities; and all in the name of science.”
The days are broken into unique challenges that cover topics including physics, space, chemistry, flight and engineering.
