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
  • Cogeneration
  • 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!!
