Y9 students excel at SEAACT Science/Engineering Fair
Tom Wragg, Year 9 Science Teacher
As part of the Year 9 Science program at Radford College, students are encouraged to push themselves to create interesting and well-planned scientific investigations that form part of their assessment. Supported by their teachers, some of these projects are of an exceptional quality and are entered into the SEAACT Science and Engineering Fair, which compares the investigations of students from all across the ACT region.
This year the judging was hosted by Radford College and held in the wonderful new space built in the Junior School. The standard of work was very high, and the following students were invited to the awards ceremony at the CSIRO to receive certificates and bursaries in the Secondary Schools category.
Highly Commended Awards
The work of Emily Nguyen and Sam McKinney was deemed to be of such an excellent quality that they have been invited to enter the national competition, the BHP Foundation Science and Engineering Awards. Good luck to Emily and Sam and well done to all the award winners, and all the Year 9 students, who have impressed us with their scientific investigations.
