Optiminds Science Engineering Division Winners

On the 24th August 2013, Bethany C, Zoe C, Anisa R and Alexandra T participated in the Optiminds Science Engineering Division III Challenge and placed 1st place in the Brisbane South region.  This meant they were going to the finals!  It has been three years in a row that the girls have participated in this competition and this  year not only did they manage to get into the State Finals, they achieved 1st PLACE in their division and are invited to participate in a Cultural exchange program in New Zealand.

A special thanks to Sam McConnell and Zorana Durdevic  for mentoring these students over the year. Additionally, a special thanks to Jamie Tarapore for helping prepare the girls for the regionals, Brian Brennan for saving the day at the Regionals, Nicola Martin who supported the girls throughout the State Finals weekend, as well as the parents who came along and showed their support at the presentation.

We congratulate the students on the time and effort put in throughout the year that resulted in this prestigious win.
