This National Australian Competition promoted Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths learning, and championed creative thinking. It encouraged students to create innovative ideas to help solve real-world problems that will shape the future, that they themselves will live through. One little idea is all it takes!
Students had to generate ideas, possibilities and actions, reflect on their thinking by transferring knowledge to new contexts and analyse, synthesise and evaluate by explaining and justifying their ideas. Twenty-eight students across Years 3 and Year 4 participated in this enrichment and all are to be congratulated for their amazing efforts!
Congratulations to Emilia Sarayar in Year 3 whose invention ‘Awe-sun Home’, a solar-powered mobile home cart for homeless people, was selected as one of the four National finalists in the Year 3 and 4 category! As a finalist Emilia received a mentoring session with Joanna Nelson, Origin’s General Manager of Future Energy & Technology, where she refined her idea and developed a video to repitch her idea for a chance to become the national winner and win the major prize.
