ELLENBROOK Secondary College students showcased their investigations at a science fair to celebrate National Science Week.

Students from Year 7 to 10 presented their work on a topic of interest, which showed research and evaluation of their findings.

Emanuel Veselovski was the Year 8 winner for his dwarf bean growth using different ratios of soil to water, and Year 9 students Atalaya Bellotti and Elke Van Vuuren won with their tomato growth using different solutions.

Overall winner Lachey Lehman won for his investigation on the power of electrolytes.

College head of learning for science Heath Dullard said students chose their own topic and put their science investigating skills to use to discover new things or bust myths.

“With a huge STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) focus in industry and tertiary education open investigations give students the chance to use creativity and cross curricula skills in an engaging way,” he said.
