Hutchins students take out 2nd place at Junior Young Physicists Tournament 2017
Friday, 28 July 2017
During the holidays five Year 10 students, Malcolm Ward, Raiden Lemon, Miles McTaggert, Sudhaunshu Hardikar and Brendan Heatley-Hart attended the Junior Young Physicists Tournament in Brisbane along with Mr Peter Crofts, Head of Faculty – Science.
The format of the competition is similar to a debate, one team presents a report of findings from an experimental investigation they have conducted, and then the opponents critique the report in a discussion with the presenter. After five gruelling rounds the boys were placed 2nd and participated in the Grand Final. In a close fought battle the boys finished in 2nd place to Onslow College from Wellington NZ. Well done to the team!
