Wonder of Science---Toolooa First Place in CQ.
 
 
During term three, a class of year eight students were given the opportunity to participate in the Wonder of Science Challenge as a part of their physics unit in science.
 
The task for the challenge was to create a Rube Goldberg machine to pop a balloon.
 
A Rube Goldberg is complex machine built to perform a simple task.
 
Three teams with the best machines competed at the Central Queensland University in Rockhampton against many other schools in the region.
 
Many thanks goes to Queensland Energy Resources for funding the days event.
 
Congratulations to all students who competed including Lachlan Warwick, Jason Rowe, Cody Emmerton, Fiona Anzum, Atria Rewan and Jasmine Elliot.
 
A special mention to Ally Ware, Emma Small, Emily-Jane Smith and Ella Stevens for coming first place!
 
As a result, the school will receive a $5000 alternate energy kit to use as a fantastic class resource.
