On Wednesday 26 June, an enthusiastic group of Year 9 and 10 students made the long trip to Canberra to take part in the Youth Leading in STEM program. This application based program was open to all Year 9 and 10 students with an interest in STEM. Organisers said that they were overwhelmed with the number and quality of applications this year. CHS had 10 students apply, 8 of which were accepted into the program. Unfortunately, 2 students had equestrian commitments, so it was a packed car of 6 that made the long journey south.
This could almost be a decade of winning the North West Region Science and Engineering Challenge for the Coonabarabran High School Science and Engineering Team. No pressure for next year’s team. The team is still waiting to hear they have progressed to the State Championships in Newcastle.
On Tuesday 18 June, five Year 11 Chemistry students from CHS travelled to Quirindi High School to take part in a state wide science competition, the NSW Schools Titration Competition.
