Star Scientific, The NSW Office of the Chief Scientist, The Combined Rotary Clubs of the Central Coast and St Edwards College have pooled their considerable resources to once again present the Science and Engineering Challenge.                   For the 21st time this event, which started right here on the Central Coast, will see more than 400 year 10 and 9 students strive to best construct working models given minimal resources.
Challenges range from a bionic hand to supplying electricity to the grid and from a moon buggy to a set of coded messages, all designed to stimulate their interest in STEM subjects before those all important choices to be made in year 11.
       With a proven record of success the S&E now travels right around the nation, every state and every territory, more than 22,000 students give it a go every year.
Funding comes from Star Scientific, the green hydrogen company right here on the coast, the Office of the Chief Scientist is a keen supporter while the combined Rotary clubs of the Central Coast provide the bulk of the volunteers.       St Edwards College, East Gosford  provides it's magnificent hall to house the Challenge and it is a major contribution to the Coast Community.
           Thank you to Star Scientific, the Chief Scientist , St Edwards College and of course to all those Rotary volunteers
