Science Fair 2017

Mon, August 28, 2017

The 2017 Science Fair was held on Thursday 17 August as part of Sheldon College’s celebration of National Science Week. A variety of topics was showcased with many students having committed a great deal of time and effort to producing their displays.

The Fair provided the opportunity for Year 9 students to show what had been discovered, investigated, research and produced in Term 2 and recognised the talented Year 9 students. Students were able to answer questions and discuss their projects with a thorough understanding of the science involved.

At the end of the Science Fair, a number of prizes were awarded. The high calibre of the student work made these decisions difficult.
