Building the Future: Girls Rise to the Challenge in EPro8

June 13, 2023 at 3:03 PM

In an industry often perceived as male-dominated, fostering a love for practical problem-solving in girls is crucial. That is why the annual EPro8 Competition beckons our Year 7 and 8 students, urging them to embrace the call to 'Engineer. Problem Solve. Innovate.' This competition, rooted in technology, science, and engineering, serves as a testing ground for the girls, laying a solid foundation as they embark on their journey into STEM.

Forming teams of four, these determined participants faced a series of challenges: constructing a Dunk Tank, creating a Certificate Giver-Outer, and engineering a Water Well. Interestingly, many teams first attempted the Water Well challenge, showcasing their strategic thinking. With only 90 minutes to complete as many tasks as possible, time became a precious resource, compelling the teams to strategize and collaborate effectively, swiftly constructing innovative solutions.

As the timer ran out, the top two teams, who were neck-in-neck right until the buzzer, secured their places in the inter-school competition. There, they will face new tasks, allowing them to further refine and expand upon the skills they have already acquired. Congratulations to all the participants, and a special acknowledgment to the girls who have advanced to the next round.
