Some of our Year 12 students took their Extended Essay research to the next level. In the style of Queensland University's 3 Minute Thesis, QAHS conducted a 180 EE. Students had 180 seconds to explain complex research studies developed from their 4000 word Extended Essay. They could only use one slide to encapsulate their overall research and they were only allowed to use non-technical language to present.

Nine of our finest researchers presented the learnings and outcomes of their research to the QAHS students during the last week of term. The versatile presentations were not only informing but highly entertaining. QAHS was treated to an afternoon of discovering the benefits of fluoride; the role of Portable Video Modelling Technology in teaching social skills to children with autism, the impact of the 2007 Water Act on the Murray-Darling River, how we can prevent our avocados from browning, cognitive biases that affect our mood, how Miles Franklin created one of the best loved female protagonists known to Australia, improving sunscreen consumption on the Gold Coast whilst providing a subsidy on its purchase, Singapore Airline's exceptional dual strategy of cost-leadership and differentiation and "Risky-Choice Frames" associated with gains and losses

IMG_1514.jpgThe judges continued to be impressed by the diversity of topics covered and the way the presenters allowed us to access their knowledge in an uncomplicated and relatable way. It was a wonderful afternoon of courageous and passionate presentations. Many thanks to our competitors Soham Kale who won the 2020 180 EE and Matua Clarke, Sahil Laloo, Aiden Luchs, Zack Maradeen, Jasper Phelan, Matilda Shirley, Mina Story, Kelly Zhou. Thanks also to our judges Mrs Vanessa Rebgetz, Mr Mark Hunter and Dr Danielle Kay.
