Students from across the region will converge on Warrnambool on Tuesday to test their scientific skills. The Great South Coast Science and Engineering Challenge, designed to inspire students to study science, engineering and technology, is part of a nationwide outreach program. Students will launch a tennis ball using elastic bands and weights, design, build and demonstrate a bionic hand using straws and make an earthquake-proof tower. The winning school qualifies for a state ‘superchallenge’ in September.
