Brainstem team invited to present at Sydney STEM Conference

BRAINSTEM TEAM INVITED TO PRESENT AT STEM CONFERENCE!

Congratulations to the Genazzano Team who were selected to present the 'BrainSTEM' project at the 4th Annual STEM Education Conference in Sydney following a successful presentation at Swinburne.  The students developed skills in research, chemistry, mathematics, design, communication, teamwork and engineering. 

              

Their creation ‘The Sugar Straw’ purposes to reduce sugar in commercially available drinks, thereby making them healthier.  The students successfully utilised activated charcoal to remove a whopping 86% of glucose from water and designed a straw prototype.  Could the ‘Sugar Straw’ be the next big thing? Thanks to Brainstem and Swinburne for this incredible opportunity.
