crystal growing competition
During Term 2, several Covenant Christian School high school students spent many lunch hours patiently growing Alum crystals for the the Crystal Growing Competition organised by the Royal Australian Chemical Institute (RACI) and the Facility of Applied Science, University of Canberra (UC).
At the awards ceremony by UC, trophies were presented by Professor Ashraf Ghanem for the best crystals in each year level.
Congratulations to our winning students:
Kiara and Savannah (equal 1st in Year 7)
Joseph and Lachlan (equal 1st in Year 7)

“Crystal growing was a joyous experience where I got to have fun and bond with other crystal-growers while creating a cool crystal.”
