Young Science Award

YEAR 6 graduate Reed Mason was one of 1600 WA primary school students to receive a Woodside Scitech Science Award at the City West red carpet launch on December 3.

Scitech professional learning manager Michael Peter said the awards were presented to two Year 6 students from each of the 824 participating schools to celebrate excellence and passion in science lessons throughout the year.

“This year 87 per cent of active WA primary schools registered for the awards,” Mr Peter said.

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

Each award recipient received an official certificate, a free pass to Scitech and free 12-month subscription to CSIRO Helix magazine.
