Kildare College wins Science and Engineering Challenge


Last week our students took part in the Science and Engineering Challenge, a nationwide STEM outreach program presented by the University of Newcastle, held at Flinders University. The students worked in groups of three or four to tackle different whole-day or half-day challenges, where they put their problem solving and team work skills to the test.

One group was tasked with creating a bionic hand from simple materials such as a glove, straws and string. The aim was to pick up a ball and a straw and to be able to make all of the signs in American Sign Language. The students worked carefully to create the five moving digits and were able to complete most of the tasks successfully.

Another group formed a ‘Team of Spies, sent to acquire top-secret information from enemy headquarters’. They created their own codes to send secret messages back to their using fibre optic rods and coloured light.

A third team was tasked with making a profit, while supplying electricity to as much of a city’s infrastructure as possible.

The highlight of the day was watching our winning Bridge Building team test their unbreakable bridge. Congratulations to Alima, Janki and Fatemeh who tested their skills on stage in front of all the other participants.

Kildare was announced overall winner of the event!
