Year 6 students Nikita Butucel and Mason Irving received the Woodside Scitech Science Awards for the passion they showed for science during the school year.

Scitech professional learning manager Michael Peter said the award was given to two graduating Year 6 students from participating schools who showed excellence in the subject.

“It’s fantastic to see an increasing focus on STEM statewide, with more schools actively tackling problems of STEM disengagement and recognising their top students,” he said.

“We hope that through this award, students will be encouraged to continue developing their science investigation skills in high school and beyond.”
