Oakhill College Science and the Big Science Competition
September 11, 2017 Oakhill News

Oakhill College has achieved impressive results in the Big Science Competition. The competition is a good way for students in Years 7 to 10 to be involved in extension activities at lunch time and after school and to track their performance against State or National averages.  The competition consists of a 50 minute, 30 multiple choice examination testing critical thinking and problem solving skills, not just factual recall. Questions are set in real-life, contemporary contexts, making them relatable and interesting. This is an initiative of ‘Australian Science Innovations’. The following boys are congratulated for their achievement.
