Year 5 Science Fair Impresses Judges


Year 5 students have been busy planning, hypothesising and conducting science experiments they designed to help the community using science and technology. From looking at ways to prevent flooding, to addressing various COVID issues, to using the sun to cook food, the students all took a unique approach to their projects. Over the past few weeks, they finished and displayed their findings ready for the Year 5 Science Fair on Wednesday. The breezeway precinct came alive for the Fair as the budding scientists eagerly shared their interesting research with the College community. Special guests included Pre Prep students, two canine friends and a number of teachers. Three of King's senior science staff - Miss Baldwin, Mr Flood and Mr Holman - were invited to attend the Science Fair as guest judges. They were impressed with the effort students had put into their work and were very pleased to see their scientific inquiry skills developing. The highly qualified judging team awarded a number of commendations and chose the top three projects.


  1. Solar Power Station by Aiden Mende
  2. Rubbish Removing Jet Boat by Sam Baker & Jhett Duncan
  3. Surf Sap (surfboard buoyancy testing) by Asher Moes, Rey Liu & Jappy Ranu

Highly Commended

  • Rachael Spring, Kiera O'Young, Mae Duncanson

Congratulations Year 5 on all of your hard work and intriguing discoveries!

"We were delighted to see such enthusiastic Year 5 students and we look forward to them joining us in High School in a few years to take their science skills even further."
