Manoora Primary School’s upper primary students were enthusiastic to become hands on scientists for the Science Investigation awards.

Students researched some real-life experiences choosing interest topics of their choice for the school based competition.

School principal Ms Tricia Thompson said this was the first time the Manoora Primary school is participating in the Food and Fibre Education SA program.

“The students have really excelled with some impressive work being achieved, each student designed and test a hypothesis, performed experimental testing as well as recording accurately to compiling a written scientific report and displayed in the form of a poster,” Ms Thompson said. 

Projects were judged by AgCommunicator Belinda Cay said the students had put great effort and research into their work and it made it a difficult decision to decide the nine students projects being selected as finalists in the Science Awards that will be judged at the Royal Adelaide Show.

With the support of the Royal Agriculture & Horticultural Society there are approximately eighty posters and forty students participating this year.

The grand final for these awards will be held on Monday, September 4 at the show.
