Students to compete in state Science and Engineering Challenge Featured


Thirty two students from The Cathedral School are bound for the State finals in Brisbane next week after receiving the highest score from the northern region in the local Science and Engineering Challenge held earlier in the year.

The Science and Engineering Challenge is a nationwide Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) outreach program presented by the University of Newcastle in partnership with communities, Rotary clubs, universities and sponsors.

Through the Challenge, students experience aspects of Science and Engineering which they would not usually see in their school environment.

This is the third time The Cathedral School has reached the state finals in recent years. The team of Year 8, 9 and 10 aged students will be required to construct an item using limited materials and will be judged on performance, speed, strength and cost.

The Cathedral School Head of Mathematics, Mr Andrew Arratoon said “Competitions like this are such a good opportunity for our students as it allows them to work as a team outside of the normal classroom setting.” 

“It also provides a chance for academic students to show off their skills and abilities in a competitive environment, similar to how sporting students regularly do on the sporting field” added Mr Arratoon. 

The Science and Engineering Challenge State Grand Final will be held on Wednesday 6 September at the University of Southern Queensland where The Cathedral School will compete against eight other schools from around the state.
