Alexander Muirhead (Year 12) was one of only 20 school students throughout Queensland to receive the Peter Doherty Award for outstanding senior mathematics and technology. Alexander represents the brightest and best of the 2015 science, technology, engineering and mathematics students.
In order to win the award, Alexander needed to present a 1000-word submission demonstrating mathematics and technology beyond the school curriculum. Other achievements to be acknowledged were the building of a robot, at the equivalent of national level: show the use of physics to simulate a black hole plus his participation in the Queensland University of Technology Vice Chancellor’s Young Scholar’s Program.
Next year Alexander hopes to study a dual degree in mathematics and aerospace engineering. The College congratulates you on your award and wishes you every success with your future plans.
