Narrabri West: Science Challenge Champions Again!

In June 38 students from our school participated in the National Science Challenge, run by the University of Newcastle and the Narrabri Rotary Club.

The students were involved in a variety of exciting and challenging science and engineering based activities. They designed, created, tested and problem solved their way through such tasks as bridge building, ring gliders, electric circuits, hovercrafts and catapult making.

The challenge was also contested by St Xavier’s Gunnedah, St Francis Xavier’s Narrabri and Narrabri Public School.

Due to excellent team work and the problem solving skills of all of our participants, we received high scores in all activities and were announced as the overall winners of the day with Tim and Josh proudly accepting the winning plaque. This is the second year in succession we have won this competition. More importantly, all of our team members had an exciting day and learnt heaps!
