During the recent school holidays, Lexi from 7.2 was awarded a scholarship to participate in the Monash University Year 8 Engineering Challenge along with more than one hundred and seventy students from around Victoria. Even though it was a Year 8 event, Lexi proved herself a capable high level participant. Throughout the event students were actively involved with demonstrations and hands on workshops in all areas of engineering that Monash University offer. Activities included, communications engineering with fibre optics, constructing an electronic model vehicle in electrical engineering, making 3D digital models with software that is used to create effects for movies in games design, teaching a German industrial robot how to work in aerospace engineering, experiments in chemical engineering, bridge building in civil engineering, pit stop and racing simulation activities with the Monash 2016 formula student racing car that was raced in Europe in mechanical engineering, wind engineering data testing in resource and environmental engineering and, even more. Lexi was a magnificent ambassador for Sale College at the event. It is possible that a rural female scholarship may be on offer in 2019. Who will be ready to take up the challenge?
Before and After. Students work with Jeremy to cretae the mural.
Students were delighted to arrive back after the semester break to find a new mural on the side of the technology building at Macalister Campus. It was the project of one of our Year 12 VCAL students Isabelle Ghaida. Isabelle as part of her Personal Development subject, designed the image. Then she organised the funding and creation of the giant 8m x 5m Artwork. Isabelle contacted local street artist Jeremy Kasper to help make her idea a reality.
She also organised a team of students Jackson Murray, Jai Trewin, Caitlyn George, Corran Williams and Amber Turner to come into school during the holidays to support her and Jeremy to get the image on the wall. Congratulations Isabelle we are proud of you and your efforts and are excited to have such an appealing addition to our school.

Guthridge students and their teachers participating in the Science and Tech Clubs held during Tuesday Lunch time.
Lunch time Clubs are off to a flying start for Term 3.
In the Science Club Mr K, Ms Cook and student Grace experiment with a range of chemicals to see how they react when placed in water. Amazingly, one chemical bursts into flame!
Mr Pattie’s Tech Club are learning how to repair 3D printers with a series of spare parts that Mr Pattie has manufactured on his 3D printer at home. Welcome to the amazing world of Technology and Science!
These are just two of the clubs run during lunch times at the Guthridge Campus. The Science and Tech Clubs run every Tuesday. All students are welcome to come along.
Year 7 students proudly display those "Wicked Inquiry Projects" voted as most impressive.
The first week of Term Three has been an overwhelming success, with Year 7 students actively demonstrating their ability to maintain already established high standards. The cohort participated in the Wicked Problem inquiry project on the first day of term as a means to once again become familiar with their peers, whilst simultaneously experiencing a deep level of learning. The picture below was taken of the students whose projects were voted as the most impressive.
