MONARO High School came a very close second place when they competed at the Science and Engineering Challenge recently.
Eight schools from the Illawarra and South Coast met at the Australian National University in Canberra to participate in a day filled with fun and friendly competition.
Students from Year 9 and 10 took part in challenges that required ultimate concentration as they built bridges, buildings and hovercrafts.
Teams were also challenged in making an aeroplane that could fly the furthest and straightest and building a moon buggy to carry weight over a simulated moon surface.
All teams were awarded with points for each challenge as a final winner had to be determined.
Students from Monaro High came in a very close second place with many Year 9 students excited to return next year for first place.
