Congratulations to Minmi Public School for achieving the fast lap of the day at the Jaguar Primary School Challenge held as part of the Hunter STEM Festival.
Primary Schools from around the Hunter were taking part in their first ever Jaguar Primary Schools Technology Challenge in the Hunter region … an entry level version of the F1 in Schools™ designed for Primary School students and run by REA Foundation. While slightly less work is involved in designing and building a car at the primary school level, the opportunities for innovation still abound as does the level of excitement shown by the students.
