Gladstone Student Science and Maths Challenge
The Gladstone Science and Maths Challenge is held annually and is run by a group of Scientists, Engineers and Teachers.
Students nominate to undertake a project in groups of up to six students over three days. Each group includes at least one mentor from the industry and a teacher.
This year around 30 students participated, with nearly as many mentors, teachers and support people.
Each group gave a seven minute presentation about their project.
The projects that were undertaken were:
- Chemical Whodunit
- Microprocessor Controller
- Sustainable House (Mathematics)
- Solar Thermal Power
- Bridge Construction
The challenge succeeds due to the support of many local companies and individuals and of course the minds of students and where they can take them!!
