BrainWays Quest success
At the BrainWays Quest on 14 and 15 November, our four Abbotsleigh teams came first and second in each division and overall. BrainWays Education creates opportunities for students to engage with complex, abstract and multi-disciplinary programs, events or phenomena. Programs meet the fundamental principles of gifted education and stimulate higher order thinking, analysis and reflection in the areas of Mathematics, Science and Humanities.
The teachers at the Quest were very encouraging and experienced and questions were challenging. All girls worked well as a team on each of the challenges. Abbotsleigh Team 1 K-2 and Team 1 Year 3-5 teams won first place in all areas of challenge. Team 2, Year 3-5 won second place in Mathematics and Science and third place in Humanities which put them in third overall. These three teams will be attending the international final on 10 December. Abbotsleigh Team 2 K-2 received a second in Humanities.
