On Friday, 15 August, eleven of our Year 7 to 9 students headed over to KSHS for the weekend to compete in the 2021 Karratha Education Initiative Northwest Shelf Project Mathematics competition. Over the two nights and three days students competed in teams of four on various STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) activities. These included working on Mousetrap Cars, an Escape Room, to see who could land on Mars first (this was a science based activity that included testing conductivity of metals), an Amazing Race and a Maths Kahoot (pop quiz) Speed round.
Congratulations to Isabelle Alves, Ella Dale, Archie Freegard and Abbey Martin who came a very close second place in the competition. Congratulations also go to Chloe Bye, Cailen Chandler, Lawson Giltinan, Toby Nunn, Ailey Peacock, Saanvi Sengupta and Andrea Smith for participating with joyful enthusiasm.
Students and teachers had a lot of fun and really enjoyed the weekend. A special thanks to our wonderful Mathematics staff Ciaran Doherty, Caroline Grimes, Estelle Hill and Ritu Rawat for giving up their weekend so that our students could compete in this event.
