10 September 2019

This year we had two groups of Year 9 students who started the Opti-MINDS Challenge. The challenge is an opportunity for all those with a passion for learning and problem-solving to showcase their skills and talents in an exciting, vibrant and public way.

Opti-MINDS provides for the demand for sophisticated, educational and motivational opportunities. The rapidly increasing and widespread involvement of thousands of participants demonstrates that Opti-MINDS is not only a valuable and worthwhile investment in the education of our citizens, but is also an integral part of our collective future. Students met every Wednesday for five weeks to complete the challenge. The Opti-MINDS Creative Sustainability Challenge is an inclusive team challenge which EMPOWERS participants to THINK, CREATE AND COMMUNICATE.

This year students were challenged to build a ‘loop to loop’ that is 1.5 metres high in which a ball can travel around the loop. All participants attended Curtin University on Saturday 31 August 2019 to showcase their structure.

Congratulations to the following students from Team 2 who qualified for the State finals on Saturday 21 September: James Edwards, Bhavana Joshi, Jarrad Rodin, Choki Wangchuk, Marko Saltamarski, Jonny Smith, Miguel Jacinto and Django Nelson.
