Tournament of Minds

On Saturday 26 August 2017 Dinesh T, Shantelle J, Leila L, Bella R, Sarah L, Hayley P and Joel W competed in the Regional Tournament of Minds held at ECU Joondalup. Students found the Tournament both challenging and a lot of fun.

Tournament of Minds is a problem solving program for teams of students from both primary and secondary school years. Students are required to solve demanding, open-ended challenges from one of the following disciplines:

  • Science Technology
  • Engineering Mathematics
  • Social Sciences
  • Language Literature

 

Woodvale SC students chose the demanding Social Sciences challenge INSPIRE-ational. Their challenge involved selecting two countries to pair for a trial colonisation of a new island. They competed in an unseen spontaneous challenge and then presented their long-term challenge performance which included a very dynamic rap battle. They worked extremely hard on their presentation before school, after school and even on the weekends over the last six weeks. The students say that it was worth it and they are all keen to be involved again next year.
