Ten Year 7 students represented St John Fisher
College at the 2019 Future Brisbane Challenge this March at Brisbane City Hall.
The girls applied their STEM skills and knowledge in a feat to design a
sustainable city by 2100.
The penultimate event was making a model and a two minute
presentation on how their idea would contribute to the Sustainability of a
Future Brisbane. The students were in five groups: Change Agents, Green
Heart Makers, Urban Shapers, Lifestyle Creators and the Resilience
