Students at the Christian Aboriginal Parents Directed School in Coolgardie presented their investigation and engineering science projects to industry professionals on Friday, as part of the school’s annual science fair.
More than 80 students had to develop their own engineering projects this year.
They then presented them to more than 30 private and public mining companies and representatives, in a bid to give the students exposure to the real outside world of science industries.
Science co-ordinator Allan Lipio said the students had been working hard for five months on the projects and were excited to finally present them to industry professionals.
“They had a lot of fun during the process and enjoyed presenting their projects,” he said.
“It was also a great joy as their teacher to see them pull this all together.”
