DATTA Vic are delighted to support this fantastic STEM challenge which has been developed by Seven Vinton from Oberon High School.
Schools throughout Victoria are invited to participate. Your students can design a facemask to be used by health professionals working on the front line during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Entries close on September 18, and students can apply as an individual or as a group.
Winning entries will be shown at Geelong Tech School and on the DATTA Vic website as inspiration for future projects.
To edit the form you may need to install Adobe PDF Reader, which can be downloaded free here: https://get.adobe.com/reader/
Good luck to the students who'll be taking part - we can't wait to see your entries!
