This is a STEMs initiative focusing on addressing Australia’s shortage of scientists and engineers. Challenges include; dog-fighting balsa model propeller powered planes; bottle rockets’ distance travelled, maximum velocity attained, precision firing & overall aesthetics. Students compete in teams of four to design, produce, test & evaluate their prototypes. Teams are required to justify their design & engineering decisions verbally to the judging panel. This competition is an ideal opportunity for schools, students, teachers, community and local industry to engage in practical numeracy and literacy activities in a fun and innovative engaging environment.
