This week, our Year 6 STEM Cup team of Bailey Crisp, Vijetha Gowda and Kate Roper were awarded 3rd place at the STEM Cup West Brisbane Grand Final. Meg Roper, Darcy Vaschina and Amélie Zahra also participated in the finals after excellent results in the rounds of the competition. It's the first time Glennie has participated in this competition and we are thrilled with the results.
STEM Cup is an after-school STEM competition for students in Years 5 to 8. The students compete over a period of seven weeks. Each week the teams score points for the challenges they complete with the top-scoring teams earning a place at the STEM Cup Grand Final held at Griffith University. The challenges change weekly, allowing the competition to cover a broad range of topics across Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. All challenges aim to link learning to real-world applications, putting what the teams are doing into a larger perspective.
There were four teams from Glennie Junior Years that participate in STEM Cup this year. All girls are to be congratulated on their excellent efforts and achievements.
