SEVENTEEN of Western Australia’s secondary schools have won BP Education Grants for developing creative projects that extend learning beyond the classroom.
The schools each receive a cash grant of up to $1,500 that they will use to bring their ideas to fruition.
Prize-winning concepts included a medication to the school sump to breed native freshwater fish species; a school vegetable garden with raised beds to ensure students with a physical disability are able to participate; and the design and manufacture of an electric vehicle capable of transporting an adult.
The projects were jointly funded by BP Refinery (Kwinana) and BP Exploration.
A full list of the winning schools and their projects can be found at www.wa.gov.au on the Ministerial Media Statements page under Education and Training Minister Alan Carpenters name.
