The Young Territory Science Competition

The Young Territory Science Competition

On Thursday 25 November, science students from Darwin Middle School attended The Young Territory Science Competition awards evening at Charles Darwin University. 

Students from Darwin Middle School entered The Young Territory Science Competition in the categories of Scientific Communication, Scientific Inquiry, Multimedia, Creative Posters, Innovations and Inventions.

The students, through a combined effort, won the ROWE Scientific Award for the second year named after Reg Rowe who is a great supporter of Science Education across Australia.
