The results from this year’s World Science Championships are absolutely amazing!

To know that over the course of 7 days over 161,000 students from 39 countries around the world answered so many questions from the Science Content Library shows that this is truly a global event with incredible learning engagement.

Helping students engage with Science in a fun and interactive way helps to develop not only their understanding of the content, but helps them to see that Science is more than just working in a laboratory. We hope that students have enjoyed the week and have learnt some new and amazing scientific facts.

It’s going to be exciting to see what results the students can produce in 2021 and whether any of our schools around the world will be able to stop Mission Heights Junior College from achieving the ‘three-peat’!!
