29th June 2018
The following boys represented Waihi School in the EPro8 Science Competition: Malachy Cleland, Olly Evans, Isaac Rayward and Mitchell Suddaby. Having qualified from the Regional Heat we headed back up to Ashburton Borough School on Monday 25th June for the Regional Semi-Final.
All the teams represented in the semi-final had finished in the top four of their heat, so we knew the standard would be high. The boys worked very well as a team and had to build a stage for a music performance, they also had to design circuits for the stage lighting and sound, and work out maths problems that focused on area and measurements.
The boys were very successful and kept accumulating points throughout the evening and were in the top three positions for most of the night. Unfortunately, they got pipped at the post, finishing 4th. It still was a very good result, and the boys enjoyed themselves and learnt a lot.
