UWA Visit

Today a group of Year 10 Students from St Stephen’s  were fortunate enough to spend the day chatting with top researchers from UWA about their careers and opportunities in the Sciences. Hearing so many stories from young science researchers creating new knowledge and understanding for the human race is an inspiration to us all.

The students were amazed at the incredible variety of science fields that are available and that these are open to students that have a passion to make a difference in the world and that the years ahead are in fact a very exciting and interesting time. And our young people will be at the forefront of this.

Year 12 ATAR Visit

The Year 12 ATAR Biology students from Duncraig visited UWA and the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Science this term. They investigated nanotechnology learning how it can make cancer cells self-destruct, forensic anthropology to produce evidence that could be used in court and used biotechnology to identify disease. It was an amazing two days that gave students insight into the real application of their course to improve society.

Year 12 ATAR Biology students recently visited UWA to discover the application of nanotechnology in modern day science and to investigate forensic anthropology. Students learned about how to make cancer self-destruct by inserting Nano gold into cancer cells and how fossils can be used to confirm the age, gender and race of people. Wow!
