- Sophia and Sienna's project 'Shrink Magic', investigated the difference between washing clothes in hot water vs cold water.
The University of Sydney Sleek Geeks Science Eureka School Prizes are part of the Australian Museum Eureka Prizes. The competition involves communicating a scientific concept in a way that is accessible and engaging whilst increasing people’s science knowledge at the same time. Participants have to submit a one to three minute video piece and a 250 word description of the content, which can be produced by an individual student or a group of up to six students. The competition presented nine awards in total across Australia in the Primary school category, so to have our girls receive three of them is a marvelous feat.
