More than 60 Indigenous science students in years 7 – 11 across Northern Territory’s Middle and High Schools were awarded this month with Flinders NT Poche Science Achievement Awards.
The awards, consisting of a Certificate of Achievement in Science and a prize, identify Indigenous students who are either high achieving science students and/or who show an interest in Science. The award can also be given to students who may need some encouragement and/or engagement in Science.
The awards were presented by Flinders NT staff from Darwin, Katherine, Nhulunbuy, Tennant Creek and Alice Springs at school end-of-year presentations. See below for a list of the 17 participating schools.
Congratulations to all winners!
Year 10 winner from Nhulunbuy High School is Leandro Feller who has already set a range of goals for his scientific future, planning to build a career in the computer industry and undertake a degree in computer science and engineering.
Science will dominate Leandro’s senior years of schooling with a full scientific programme next year and he will be attending the CSIRO STEM Summer Camp during the holidays!
