YEAR 10 students at Wanneroo Secondary College organised and ran an Innovation Fair for 350 local primary school students during National Science Week.

Activities included dissections, forensic science, a life-size operation game, virtual reality, pressurised gas-powered F1 racing cars, drones, submarines, coding, maths activities, dry ice experiments, edible chemistry and bottle rocket launching.

This was the school’s third annual event but the first organised and run by the Year 10 students.

Wanneroo Secondary College was one of 365 schools awarded a National Science Week schools grant in 2018, which help to run activities and events during the week.

The school plans to go bigger and better next year.

National Science Week ran from August 11 to 19.
