2019 STEM events

Engineering workshops

On Thursday 21 October, a group of Year 9 – 10 students participated in the Engineering workshops organised by Newcastle University and held the Great Hall in Parliament House. The group of 30 students were divided into teams to tackle the challenges, which culminated in one team coming second in the bridge challenge, Siobhan P. - Anastasia Paris DA - Teia C. An interesting event for all participants, which should hopefully be an annual occurrence and being held so close to TPS we certainly anticipate ongoing participation!
