Our female students in Years 4-7 recently attended a STEM workshop, hosted at the school by an engineering student from USQ. Students discussed the importance of women studying and working in the engineering field. They then tried their hand at designing and constructing a catapult that can fling a large marshmallow into bucket two metres away. The only materials available to the students were a plastic spoon, 10 straws, 10 rubber bands, 2 pipe cleaners, 10 paddlepop sticks and 2 feet of masking tape.

Our girls had a wonderful time and are to be commended on their end results. There were a number of unique catapult designs, with one team successfully landing the marshmallow in the bucket!!
