Students from the Lockyer region gathered at the University of Queensland campus in Gatton to share their responses to the Wonder of Science challenge tasks and take part in fun workshops. They competed for the title of Regional Champion and an invitation to present to their peers from all the Queensland regions at the State Conference to be held in November at the University of Queensland St Lucia campus.
The regional student conferences provide the opportunity for students to practise effective science communication, conveying the process and outcomes of their scientific inquiry project which builds higher order thinking skills and develops scientific understanding.
Well done to all the students from our participating schools, and particularly those teams selected to represent their class at the conference. Congratulations to the following student teams named regional champions who will join us at the State Conference in November:
Year 7 - St Mary's College, Ipswich
Year 8 - Rosewood State High School and Laidley State High School, tied 1st place
Year 9 - St Mary's College, Ipswich
Year 10 - Lockyer District State High School
