For the Sapphire City Science and Engineering Challenge, 2022 was possibly the most keenly contested on Thursday March 10.
The University of Newcastle challenge team arrived at the RSM Club in their white van, complete with all their activities and were met by an enthusiastic team of Rotary Club members who provided the challenge team with the ability to organize and staff the events.
This year saw a combined force of Inverell, Inverell East and Warialda Rotary Clubs who came together and enjoyed supervising and assisting the school students.
Inverell and Macintyre High Schools and Holy Trinity School students were joined by Glen Innes and Tenterfield High Schools and Inverell Public School with a small group of very keen students.
At the end of the day and before the bridge breaking competition, the scores from the various schools were very close.
Macintyre High School came out the winner, with Glen Innes High in second place.
Science and Engineering was definitely the winner of the day as all of the students had an amazing and memorable day.
The rotary clubs extended thanks to the teachers who organised their students and too the Challenge staff from the University of Newcastle.
Engineers Australia and the Office of the Chief Scientist NSW assisted with sponsorship for the day.
