Australian Science Fair at Monash University

This term, two of our students Sophia and Layla travelled to Melbourne to represent the Australian Science & Mathematics School at the Australian Science Fair at John Monash Science School. Here is what they had to say about this fantastic learning experience.

From November 19th to 22nd, we participated in the 2023 Australian Science Fair at John Monash Science School in Melbourne. Four other interstate schools joined us, along with students from John Monash. During the event, we had the amazing opportunity to present our Research Project findings on the antibiotic properties of fungi and honey through a poster and oral presentation. During the science fair we got to participate in activities such as a blind bag engineering challenge and a koala genotyping activity at Monash University. As a part of the trip, we also had the chance to explore the Monash University campus and Melbourne CBD, visiting notable places such as CSIRO, the Melbourne Science Gallery, and the state library. This experience allowed us to bond with students from different parts of Australia and learn about their research.
