Scientific Thinking & Research Skills (STARS) – Southern Region
Our Year 9 Newman girls won 1st & 2nd places respectively in the Scientific Thinking and Research Skills (STARS) Southern Region 3-day program, beating other schools from the region. The theme this year was : Solving Traffic problems in Sydney in the future.
This is the third year running that MMCC girls have taken the top place.
- The top team was won by Gabriela Perovic, Allyn Puente and Alana G. They researched and made an Imovie to suggest: How does car to car communication between driverless cars provide a safe experience for drivers and bystanders?.
- Second place was won by Sarah Pham, Rand Amanouil and Amy Ho. Their research was: How could the use of hydrogen fuel cells in vehicles be sustainable through the use of solar panels.
Thank you to Ms Bronislawa Kennedy for guiding the students in this program and to Ms Kennedy and a few parents for bringing the few of them to OLMC Buraneer over the 3 days.
