Could you imagine Julius Caesar, Christopher Columbus, Charles Darwin and Eddie Mabo all in the same Zoom chat?
Well — this is what has been happening in Term 3 for Tournament of the Minds — a co-curricular competition designed to enhance critical thinking, creativity, teamwork and problem solving.
Due to COVID-19, the entire competition was planned, recorded, edited and performed via Zoom. Students put together an interview-style presentation where they asked pertinent questions about topics in today’s society such as medical advancements, human rights issues, climate change, and how each of the aforementioned people would react.
These students worked tirelessly over Term 3 through online meetings and Google Docs to put this all together — an absolutely wonderful effort and amazing dedication to seeing through their winter co-curricular.
Well done to the following students:
- Year 7: Mikayl Keshavarz and Lachlan Young
- Year 9: Jack Tindale
- Year 10: Finn Stranix, Ben Stirling and Tom Hughes
