Kingsway Christian College was one of just forty schools from around Western Australia lucky enough to participate in an extraordinary one day science event on Thursday 22 May at the Perth Convention Centre.
At the 2014 Extreme Science Experience (ESE), six of our Year 10 Advanced Science students, Christy Bower, John Matthews, Alessia Borraccino, Chern Qi Gan, Sara Htaik and Kyle Selby had the opportunity to learn through hands-on experiments with Australia’s top innovators.
Our students were thrilled to meet up close and personal with Nobel Laureate Dr Barry Marshall who discovered the bacteria that cause stomach ulcers. The students then had the opportunity to talk and work with the 2014 ATSE Clunies Ross Awards winners in fun, informative workshops.
“The students were very excited and it was a real privilege for them to get to meet and learn from Australia’s top innovators and all attending acknowledged that it was a truly inspiring and rewarding time.” said Dr Siew Yap, Head of Science at the College.
