Dianella Science Quest
During week 8 a select group of our year 6 students competed in the Dianella Science Quest. This is a science based competition where groups compete in a number of science challenges at Dianella Secondary College. These challenges included a forensic task, identifying rock types, chemistry and a STEM based building project. Our students were great representatives for our school, competing with a good team spirit and showing respect to teachers and fellow competitors.
One of the challenges involved building a tower with spaghetti and hot glue guns. The objective is to balance the maximum possible weight on top of this tower. The tower also has to be as light as possible to win the challenge. One of the Balga teams managed to build a tower that weighed only 12 grams but could carry more than 5 kilograms without breaking. This means the tower could support more than 400 times its own weight! This was a record for the day. Well done to Huriya, Tyson, Imogen and Xena for this great achievement.
At the end of the day, one of our teams finished in second place, which is a great showing given that 25 teams from 8 different schools were competing. Congratulations to Eh Ku Wah, Louise, Haley, and Malaak!
