East Metro Health Service Youth Innovation Think Tank

In Week 2, PCACS hosted the very first round of the new format East Metro Health Services Youth Innovation Think Tank. 

Thanks to the Innovation team, Ashleigh Small, Ashleigh Spano and Lindsay Rowe from Royal Perth Hospital for facilitating the day.

Students from PCACS and Comet Bay College pit their design skills against the tricky issue of minimising harm and traumatic injury from the use of escooters.

The winning team from Comet Bay presented brilliantly and came up with a very unique idea that impressed the judges.

The best ideas from this statewide initiative will be incorporated into the State Health Department policy and practices.

Thanks to all involved, especially the students for the focus and commitment they brought to the challenge.

Heats will continue at other schools throughout Perth until September and the finals will be convened at Royal Perth Hospital.

Week 3 will see PCACS host the Water Corporation Schools Think Tank Challenge and welcoming teams from several other schools. We will also be taking students from Years 5 to 10 to the University of WA to compete in the very academically challenging Da Vinci Decathlon.

These events represent just a fraction of what TIDES is organising this semester. Stay tuned for updates.
