Fraser Heights Secondary's senior team (Tracy Meng, Alice Zhang, Ian Chen, Andrew Guo, Jerry Jiao, Darryl Yang, Sherry Gu) placed first at the 2017 Kwantlen Science Challenge, while the school's junior team (Nick Liu, Jerry Li, Alex Zhang, Kelly Tang, Jennifer Tsai, Patrick Kim, Kirill Kudriavstev) placed second.


Fraser Heights Secondary senior and junior teams placed first and second, respectively, at the Kwantlen Science Challenge.

With 30 schools competing in each category, the Surrey school rose to the top.

The day-long event at Kwantlen Polytechnic University involved teams from across the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley, with Grade 11 and 12 (senior) and Grades 8-10 (junior) competing against each other in five practical activities in biology, chemistry, environmental science, geology, engineering design, mathematics and physics.

Some challenges included things such as making a thermometer from materials provided and then using it to determine the temperature of a liquid; building a boat powered by a solar panel; and determining the best strategy to win a game, by calculating probabilities.

Other Surrey schools also cracked the Top 10 at the Kwantlen Science Challenge, with Semiahmoo Secondary's junior and senior teams placing fourth and fifth, respectively, and Fleetwood Park seniors placing seventh.
