THE Science and Engineering Challenge is a national competition for year 9 and 10 students.
Eight teams compete in eight activities for a full day.
The ’60-minute challenge’ has just four teams (students versus community) in two activities - usually Gold Fever and Puff Puff Golf (a balloon powered car).
All participants have just 60 minutes to complete their activities.
The challenge provides relevant, hands on experience that expels misconceptions and encourages interest in science and engineering careers.
It is also a whole lot of fun.
The Mid Coast Science and Engineering Committee in conjunction with the University of Newcastle and the Chill Out committee will conduct a 60-minute challenge in Gloucester on July 26 commencing at 12pm.
Three to four teams of six to eight people are required to compete in the challenge against the school team that won the Discovery Challenge at Taree in May. Send entries to John on 6558 8272 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The challenge is free to enter as the costs are covered by challenge sponsors MidCoast Water, AGL Gloucester and Rotary.
