Cobar High wins challenge … again!

For the second year running Cobar High School has won the Outback Science and
Engineering Challenge! The annual event is a nationwide STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) outreach program presented by the University of
Newcastle in partnership with Rotary clubs, other universities and sponsors. Through the challenge, students experience different aspects of science and engineering which they would not normally see in their school environment. The event also aims to inspire students to consider a future career in the STEM field. There were seven schools from across the western area competing at this year’s event with Cobar High finishing as the overall winners with a score of 1,372 points, 99 points ahead of runners-up Broken Hill High School with Cobar Public School finishing third on 1,018.
