From interactive Sudoku activities, the paper bridge challenge, to the infamous marshmallow spaghetti tower structure, STEM Week 2022 was successfully held from 30 May – 2 June with lots of hands-on STEM-based interdisciplinary challenges designed for the Year 7s-9s.
There was a ‘find the element’ Treasure Hunt and various asynchronous challenges that took place from the previous week. A special mention goes to Isabelle Jenkins from 7E who won the Yerr 7 Sudoku competition single-handedly playing against teams of 2.

“We are impressed by the effort of all the teams to construct their best bridge in the limited time. They were able to successfully incorporate engineering knowledge to build bridges that were stable, has the best structural integrity,” explained student organiser Hans Yang (12W).
