Winner of Best Science Video Award

Wednesday, 18th September 2013

Alhamdulillah!, Al-Hidayah Islamic School won First Place in the Science Video Category for Primary Schools in the 55th Science Talent Search (STS) competition 2013.

Over 1500 primary and secondary students from more than 50 schools throughout Western Australia participated. 

Competition categories included Research Investigations (Year 3-12), Inventions and Science Communications (K -Year 2 Posters and Science Videos).

One hundred and sixty four student finalists and their families attended the awards presentation on Wednesday evening the 18th September at Scitech, City West. Mr Alan Brien, CEO Scitech, spoke about the importance of the competition and together with STAWA President, Mr Geoffrey Lewis presented the awards to the winners.

The year 7 boys entry for the competition was a 60 second video on a Science Experiment.

The year 7 boys, heard that air filled balloons are very strong and do not burst when someone stands on it while balancing themselves. The students wanted to test this theory and also find out what would happen if they used balloons that were filled with water.

Many students predicted that the balloons filled with water would hold their weight better than air filled balloons because water is heavier than air. But some students believed that the opposite would happen.

Watch the video to find out which is stronger, air-filled balloons or water-filled balloons?
