This year we have been fortunate to be partnered with a number of secondary schools and research organisations. Schools have included Baulkham Hills High School, Cherrybrook Technology High School, Cumberland High School, Mount St Benedict’s College, Snowy Mountains Grammar School, and The King’s School. Together with our incredible scientists have created this record of scientific excellence in research.
