A group of 13 students from the Year 4, 5 and 6 Academic and Creative Extension (A.C.E) group participated in the Opti-Minds Competition at Curtin University, a problem-solving competition which is designed to encourage creativity and teamwork.
The Science Engineering team was challenged to create two devices which could launch tennis balls so that they would collide mid-air in A Matter of Course. Our Social Sciences team had to consider life in 2088 and the pros and cons of one government for the entire world. Both teams put on very entertaining performances as they communicated their ideas in a drama.
All students are to be commended for their team work, extra time working on the tasks at home and for the way they conducted themselves on the day. Thanks to the parents for their support of this fantastic opportunity for the students to develop teamwork, creative thinking, independence and organisational skills.
