26 Year 10 science students from MRSHS attended the University of NSW – Science and Engineering challenge in Australind on 2nd August 2022.

The competition is nationwide, there were six days run in Perth and three in the South West. A total of 72 schools competed in WA.

Margaret River Senior High School gained the highest score for the STATE!

We have been invited to Bendigo in Victoria for the National Championships in October. An outstanding result for a regional school.

The students did a number of challenges during the day. There were eight different challenges including; making a buggy that could move on the uneven surface of mars, designing towers to withstand motion similar to an earthquakes, making a robotic hand from straws and string and building a bridge.

MRSHS won five of the eight challenges. The day is a STEM event and really challenged the students to ‘think outside the box’.
