Congratulations go to Jess Perro for taking out 1st place in the Year 11 University of the Sunshine Coast STEM Research Awards AND Senior Scientist Award!
Whilst Agricultural Science was not one of the entry categories to select on the USC STEM entry form (only Chemistry, Physics and Biology were the categories), I think it is highly probable that they will now be including an Agricultural Science category in this for the future! A massive win for both Jess and the credibility of Agricultural Science!
Seriously, we are blessed with incredible students and supportive teachers! A special thanks to Fenton for passing on the award details so Jess could enter and to Kerrianne for standing in my place for Jess on the night.
Jade King, Head of Agricultural Science
