STEAM Innovations Fair is an amazing learning journey. Not only do students experience authentic science by following the Scientific Inquiry Process or the Engineering Design Process, they also develop literacy, numeracy, technology, critical thinking, communicating, creativity, collaboration and self management skills.

Congratulations to all students who entered a project this year. It is a lot of hard work and takes considerable time and effort, and you have all done yourselves proud!


The standard of projects this year has once again been very high and we would like to thank all students for producing such amazing projects. Well done!  69 projects were entered and of those, 20 have been judged the best of the fair.


Special congratulations to the students listed below and a special thanks to the parents and teachers who supported them along the way.
