Spotlight on Science

During July and August, seven teams of students from Year 7 and Year 8 competed in the inaugural Moreton Bay STEM Fest.
Students researched an area within the topic of Light, designed an extended experiment then presented their findings.  Some of the topics researched were efficiency of solar panels; effect of colour light on emotions; extending the life of glow sticks and bioluminescence. 
Competing against students from Dakabin and Burpengary State High Schools and Murrumba Secondary College, the students used their research as well as drawing on the knowledge of QUT Ambassadors to complete their investigations and meet the timelines for presenting.  All students did themselves and the school proud, with Ocean and Kaitlyn winning First Place in the Year 8 section for their work on bioluminescence.  Congratulations to all students involved.
