Quest For Knowledge

On 25 and 26 October, Rylan Sanders-Wall, Sophie Curtis and Marcus Von Rausch from Year 9 took part in the Quest Team challenge run by BRAINways Education, in conjunction with the University of Queensland for gifted and talented students. The Quest is described as requiring ingenuity, grit and collaborative teamwork across the disciplines of Math, Humanities and Science. 

Answering questions including the difference between Empiricism and Rationalism and the nuances of Classical, General and Special Relativity, our team not only won the challenge but were the first team ever to have achieved a 100% score in Science! 

Good luck to this clever team at the State Finals tomorrow at the University of Queensland.
