Student resources

It’s not just teachers that need to organise the activities – high school students can also book themselves into our fun and interactive challenges and listen to our Murdoch Minds podcast series.

Murdoch Fun Fridays

Are you a master of trivia? Proficient in Year 10 Chemistry? An incredible gamer? If you relish a challenge, enjoy competing and love winning prizes, then join us for Murdoch Fun Fridays!

As a high school student you can book onto these fun challenges yourself and will compete with students from all over WA over nine weeks. But make sure you participate in as many challenges as possible, as there will be weekly prizes and the students with the highest cumulative scores at the end of the term will go in the draw to win a $100 JB Hi-Fi voucher!

How to take part in the challenges

To join in on the challenges, all you’ll need is two devices, like a computer, phone or tablet. On your first device, login to the stream here. You’ll then use your second device as the buzzer – take note of the code on the stream on your first device then type it into Menti (the online quiz program) on your second device.

We invite all teachers and high school students to join us for our Murdoch Minds podcast series where you can listen to amazing interviews with our academics, many of who are leaders in their field.
