Congratulations to Year 10 students from Senior School who won the regional competition at Deakin University on 25 May. The team will now progress to the State Championship later this year.
The Science & Engineering Challenge is a nation-wide competition which runs for students in Year 10. The regional competition was held at Deakin University Waurn Ponds, and involved 16 schools from the Geelong area. Competition was held over two days, with 8 schools competing each day.
On the day of competition students were placed in teams of between two & five members and assigned either one or two engineering challenges for the day. The challenges involved everything from creating satellite dishes to receiving coded digital messages, to developing electronically controlled air balloons which had to be steered through an obstacle course. The finale was construction of the lightest, strongest bridge. The Christian College construction was the only one to withstand the full weight of the ‘bridge buster’
