C4E Excursions

On Tuesday 20 June Darwin High School Centre 4 Excellence Science students attended an excursion to the NT Museum as a part of their unit on evolution.

MGANT Engagement Manager, Rebecca Renshaw introduced students to the wet store, where a vast number of organisms were preserved in jars or large tubs of alcohol. Included in the collection was a five-legged frog and a two-headed shark. Dr Richard Willan took students to the main exhibition and discussed fossils, including living fossils and various species of bivalve, sharks and the nautilus.

Darwin High School thanks Ms Renshaw and Dr Willan for their time and efforts.

C4E Science and Mathematics students also attended the Science and Engineering Challenge at Charles Darwin University earlier this month. 

Students worked in groups of four to tackle a range of challenges including building a buggy to traverse rough terrain and designing and constructing a catapult to launch a tennis ball at a target. The day was thoroughly enjoyed by all students. Darwin High School was awarded third place third after the grand finale of the bridge strength testing in the CDU Mal Nairn Auditorium.

Darwin High School C4E students and staff thank all presenters and organisers of the event for such an engaging and enjoyable day.
