BRISBANE GIRLS GRAMMAR SCHOOL
Brisbane Girls Grammar School has long been committed to innovative science education. In 2016, over 90% of Year 12 students studied science subjects and, of that group, more than 40% are now undertaking a science-based university degree. The school attributes the popularity of science to its specialist, dedicated teachers and an evolving array of experiential learning opportunities. Partnering with the Translational Research Institute, Year 11 students are currently working alongside biomedical professionals on two real-world research projects. And in October, the school will unveil its own remotely operated, robotic telescope and observatory – the first in a girls’ school in Australia. The observatory will expand opportunities for partnerships with universities, scientific and commercial organisations, and the global scientific community.
