Best STEM Idea

Feeding The Future

Narrogin Primary School

Project: The problem with small inland countries is they have trouble finding food to feed their families, unlike bigger countries close to shore as they can easily find fish to feed on. The idea we thought of to solve this problem is to send food, medicines and seeds via a boat to 3 countries we learned are in the most poverty and starvation. So we have programmed an Edison robot to be our example model to follow the routes and tracks and avoid obstacles. We have planned a route that has no shipwrecks and currents. We have designed a boat which could carry our supplies.

Team Members: Maddie Andrews, Claire Conlan, Lexi Ashton.

Beaconsfield Primary School

Themed Category

Future Farming

Narrogin Primary School

Project: The problem is that farming fertilizers and chemicals are getting carried by rainfall and water into dams causing the water to get contaminated. We found out that CO2 is very important for plant life and is a good fertilizer, so we decided to use it instead of the farming fertilizer. We did an experiment to see if the CO2 fertilizer was as good as the farming fertilizer. We designed a plan for a farm to apply our results to a real life system.

Team Members: Lilli Beresford, Abby Dewing.
