STEM Students celebrate winning competition at Heathcote

We are delighted to announce the winners of the STEM Superheroes competition last week. The STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) competition was open to all our Year 7, 8 and 9 students. Ms Faria, STEM Co-ordinator, fills us in on the details!

We had some superb work submitted for this exciting competition, and choosing the winning projects was no easy task. However, we are proud to confirm the winners of the competition are as follows;

Alex Tyzack in Year 7 - for his essay on the accomplishments of Pythagoras as a mathematician, including some curiosities about the beliefs of the Ancient Greeks regarding the personalities of numbers. He wins a Plasma Ball lamp.

STEM SuperheroesSophie Washbrook in Year 9 - for her poster about the scientific and personal achievements of Stephen Hawking, who has expanded his fame as a theoretical physicist and author to become a pop icon in great part due to his sense of humour and charitable work. She wins a Plasma Ball lamp.

Dmytro Shafatynskyi in Year 9 - for his poster on the life and achievements of the first human in space, Yuri Gagarin, which included a surprising personal connection between Dmytro's great-grandfather and his STEM superhero. He wins a Plasma Ball lamp.

An honourable mention to Thilakshy Sasikumar from Year 7, who won a Science Dictionary for her work.

In addition to their prizes, our winners will have their work displayed in the Transition Building.
