Monash Science Triathlon 2017

15 teams from five different schools converged at Monash University Malaysia on 22 July 2017 for the Monash Science Triathlon 2017.

Associate Professor Kumaran Narayanan welcomed the participants and gave them an introduction to the courses offered by the School of Science.

Running for the fourth consecutive year, teams of four used their wits to tackle three different sessions - biology and genetics; food, science, and technology; and analytical chemistry.

While some had frowns on their foreheads, others were visibly overwhelmed and excited, attempting the tasks laid before them.

Methodist College Kuala Lumpur (MCKL) participants became the big winners when they bagged both the first and third places. The Grand Prize winners, Group 2 from MCKL, walked away with a Monash University Malaysia School of Science undergraduate course tuition fee waiver of 35%. Group 1 from Sunway Australian Matriculation Programme (AUSMAT) were First Runner-Up. All three winning teams were awarded book vouchers, individual medals and trophies.

Congratulations to all winners!
