The Robotics Team at Open Day

The Siding Spring Observatory Open Day was made even more interesting when the Supernova Star Squad opened for business.  The Team spent the day demonstrating everything the robot has to offer and a little bit more with many of the Open Day visitors getting more than they had bargained for. The team enjoyed talking to whoever was interested, answered many questions and also enjoyed chasing young children around the Dome with the robot.

A big thank you to the team members who volunteered to help out.

Far Out Science

The 5:45am start wasn’t enough to turn off our select group of Year 7 and 8 Science enthusiasts and the day trip to Armidale was well worth it. The students were treated to a day of discovery, investigations, gory wounds and blob monsters.

Science & Engineering Challenge

Science & Engineering Challenge Team

On the 28th of August, 32 Year 9 and 10 Students from Coonabarabran High School competed in the University of Newcastle Science and Engineering Challenge. This was the State Final of the competition, within which students in teams of four competed in multiple tasks and challenges to earn points, which were then combined to contribute to the school score. These tasks were activities such as using limited materials to build model mars rovers and bridges, managing energy networks efficiently and other such challenges. These tasks and activities also provided students with opportunities to build teamwork skills and resilience during strenuous problem-solving activities, proving to be a positive contribution for those students on their eventual way to undertaking their HSC subjects. Students also enjoyed the opportunity to visit a big city. All our teams performed at a high standard. The CHS team faced stiff competition, including from schools such as James Ruse, coming in sixth position out of eight. ​
