The thirteenth iteration of the ASMS’ annual International Science Fair (ISF) kicked off today!

Students from nine different continents gathered this morning for a briefing on what they’ll be doing this week – participating in challenge-based learning activities, going on excursions, a poster presentation, and much, much more!

Today’s agenda started with the opening ceremony, with¬†speeches from Susan Hyde, the principal; Susan Close, the Minister for Education; Colin Stirling, the Vice Chancellor of Flinders University; and Dr Paul Garder-Steven, “the digital version of a blacksmith”, who all spoke to our students about the importance of science in the future. We also had a performance and some indigenous science from the Paitya Dance Group, who managed to convince a few students to try their hand at traditional dancing!

With activities ranging from constructing rocket submarines to solving futuristic city planning issues, it looks to be another great week of learning adventures at the ASMS!
