The engineering students have been studying energy and transport this Session and to finish the unit we set up the Theatre with a racecourse to test their C02 car designs. Students designed and built their small cars using computer software that also optimises aerodynamics, however, the final construction had to include old fashioned hand skills. The fastest car for the day was Thomas who covered 17 metres in 1.13 seconds. Thank you to Alfred Deakin school for the loan of the equipment.
Thank you to students and staff who participated in this year's Book Week promotion, dressing up as their favourite characters from the world of literature. Book Week is an important event on the College's calendar where we celebrate the literary achievements of our nation's best authors, illustrators, and artists. Thank you to all those who participated.
