Last term a group of Emmanuel Year 9 and 10 Science students attended the World Science Festival held in Brisbane.
Our students got to visit the Mercedes Benz - Ars Electronica presentation where they were one of the first groups of people in the world from the public to see the automated self-driving car research that Mercedes has been working on for the last 7 years. They brought a large portion of the robotics lab from Austria and set it up at QUT in Brisbane to present to the public for the first time (and we were the first presentation). Amazing work!
Students also got to hear from a research panel of numerous scientists currently leading the world in using music (or sound waves, specifically ultrasound between 700MHz and 1GHz) to achieve a reduction or cure of symptoms in dementia patients.
What an enlightening insight into the incredible advances of the Science world.
