On Tuesday 14 August, Year 7-9 AEP students were lucky enough to attend a workshop held at the University of Western Australia (UWA) as part of Science Week.  The event hosted by the UWA Science Union had the students participate in a range of activities and hand's on displays on science, maths and engineering.  The displays included; a Physics display on liquid nitrogen a competition to draw the organs of the body and diagnose a disease run by Anatomy, Health Science had them cleaning up a "toxic spill" while Engineering had the students build a tower from marshmallows and spaghetti and Agriculture had the students identify various types of grains and agricultural products.

Results from various competitions were used to determine an overall winning team, which was "Team 6" a group of John Forrest Students from Years 7, 8 and 9.
