Stanwell sponsors school catapult challenge

28 November 2018

Recently, Benarkin school students from Year 3-6 joined Linville, Tanguringie and Cooyar students at Tanguringie school in a Catapult Technology Challenge.

Sixteen teams competed in longest throw, accuracy, hoop bounce and hole-in-one challenges using their own group catapult they designed and made. Points were awarded for each activity and an overall winner determined from this.

The challenge was sponsored by Stanwell, and supported with engineer visits throughout the term to help students with their designs.

Congratulations to William McCoombes, Sarah McDonnell and Rogue Wesley on being the overall winners and bringing the perpetual trophy back to Benarkin.
