Today our Year 7 Gifted and Talented students visit The Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research to provide them with a hands- on experience of bio-medical research. Students learnt how cells cooperate to make multicellular organisms and gained an understanding of the size and scale of the microscopic world!
On Saturday, our Year 7 Gifted and Talented students competed in the FIRST LEGO League Challenge. This is an international competition where students have to create an innovation project about a solution to improve transport, code a LEGO robot they designed to complete missions and demonstrate the core values of the competition throughout the day. This was the first time Harrisdale SHS competed and received the “Breakthrough Award” and also placed second in the “Innovation Project Award”.
