The physics of scram­bled eggs

TWO groups of Year 10 stu­dents are putting their physics knowl­edge to the test in an egg drop chal­lenge.

With a num­ber of tried-and-tested mod­els (such as a box filled with pad­ding) along with a num­ber of creative so­lu­tions, the stu­dents have put their mod­els through their paces to vary­ing suc­cess.

One thing the group has defini­tively learned – an egg in a bal­loon filled with wa­ter makes a big mess.

Par­lia­men­tary ser­vice

MP JAMES Lis­ter in­vited Stan­thorpe State High School hos­pi­tal­ity stu­dents to join him at a re­cent func­tion held at Par­lia­ment House in Bris­bane.

The func­tion’s pur­pose was to pro­mote ev­ery­thing his South­ern Down elec­torate of­fers. Five stu­dents, es­corted by hos­pi­tal­ity teach­ers Tanya Hamil­ton and Melissa Pas­coe, were priv­i­leged to serve the food pre­pared by par­lia­men­tary chefs, high­light­ing South­ern Downs’ fa­mous pro­duce.

Stu­dents were con­grat­u­lated on their pro­fes­sion­al­ism and Mr Lis­ter MP ap­plauded the Queens­land Govern­ment for con­tin­u­ing to fund the Queens­land Col­lege of Wine Tourism, where the stu­dents train each week.

Af­ter the ser­vice, the team were given a grand tour of Par­lia­ment House, in­clud­ing the pri­vate func­tion and din­ing ar­eas only avail­able to sit­ting MPs.

This was a very spe­cial treat as they were greeted by MPs and staff, ea­ger to show them around.

Thanks must go to Mr Lis­ter for the in­vi­ta­tion and to Mario from Par­lia­men­tary Ser­vices for look­ing af­ter the group.
