Star Scientific is proud to support the Rotary Club of Gosford and its annual Science and Engineering Challenge for secondary schools across the local Central Coast region. 

Not only does Star Scientific provide material support, but our science and engineering staff are present to supervise the various projects, provide a few hints and hopefully inspire the young students towards a career in science and engineering. 

The schools compete across a two-day festival on various tasks, culminating in a bridge-building exercise where a series of ever-increasing weights are rolled across the students’ efforts watched by all and great fun! 

The annual event, which is in its 21st year, engaged more than 400 high school students in the challenge and drew an array of supporters including the State’s Office of the Chief Scientist as well as multiple Rotary clubs.
