2018 Gold Coast Science Competition – 1st Place again!

During week 7, QAHS hosted the annual Gold Coast Science Competition. The event collects the best STEM projects from South East Queensland, with entries from Year 1 through to Year 12 students. Entries are judged in the categories of:

The quality of work submitted, showcases the great STEM talent in our region and completely filled our upstairs laboratories. The judging was completed on Monday 27 August by STEM teachers throughout the region and provides teachers with a great opportunity to discuss ideas in STEM education.
