The Faculty would like to congratulate this year's Science and Engineering Investigation Award winners.
Year 5 winners:
- 1st place - Liam Allen and Callum Green
- 2nd place - Lachlan Austin and Jeremiah Billing
- 3rd place - Kiarna Falk and Blaise Fitzallen
Year 6 winners:
- Honourable mention - Charlie Tole
Grade 5/6 winners:
- 1st place - Selah Sabljak
- 2nd place - Zachary Allen and Reuben Allen
Selah's "Soapy Solutions" project investigated the pH of soaps to see which was more acidic, thus helping the human skin to maintain its natural acidic nature. Her investigation disproved her initial hypothesis that soap free products would be the best for human skin.
Charlie Tole's investigation, "What Shape of Wing Generates the Most Lift?", lead him to discover that the larger wings generated the most lift. Charlie hopes to be a pilot one day, so investigating the properties of wing lift has helped to provide some solid grounding in aeronautical engineering. Charlie is putting his prize money towards future pilot lessons.
Congratulations to all those who took part and investigated some fascinating areas of science and engineering.
