Science student success

Sunshine Beach State High School students performed well at the 2017 USC Science Investigation Awards.    The investigation awards run by the Qld STEM Education Network celebrated work that students have been doing to investigate various real-world issues and challenges that are all around them. Their understanding of scientific processes provide them with the capacity and confidence to be informed consumers and make decisions about complex issues that face and impact our lives. Students have worked collaboratively with peers and teachers in the development of various projects in different Science streams in extended experimental Investigations.  The awards recognise the excellent standard of work in collection of data and in analysis of trends, evaluation of the process and drawing valid and meaningful conclusions on their findings.
