Bright Minds Compete in da Vinci Decathlon Competition
Thirty-two of our Academic Excellence and GATE STEM students from Years 7 to 10 recently participated in the da Vinci Decathlon event at Winthrop Hall, UWA.
The da Vinci Decathlon is an academic competition designed to challenge and stimulate the minds of school students. Students compete in teams of eight across 10 disciplines.
There were 20 or more teams in each year group at the event, hosted by Methodist Ladies College. Many schools with top-ranked academic programs were taking part. It was a thrilling competition with highly creative and skilled answers to the problems posed.
We are delighted to share that our Year 9 students achieved podium finishes in two categories. They came 2nd place in Ideation and 3rd place in Codebreaking.
Congratulations also to our Year 7, 8 and 10 students who participated with enthusiasm and resilience throughout their rounds.
