A solar powered farm by Beaconhills College graduate Seetali Mack has earned selection for Top Designs, part of the VCE Season of Excellence.

Seetali completed the farm design last year in her Systems Engineering subject. Its features include solar panels that track the sun and an automated water trough.

Seetali and her Systems Engineering teacher Peter Van Waart, from the College’s Pakenham Campus, were thrilled to hear of the project’s selection.

“At first I was shocked and didn’t believe it,” Seetali said. “2020 had just been a terrible year, so for something like this to come out of it was amazing.”

She said while Systems Engineering was traditionally a male-dominated subject, she strongly encouraged other girls to study it.

“This subject was just heaps of fun as I really enjoyed working with other people on our projects – everyone was really supportive.”

Seetali is also keen participant in the performing arts, and enjoyed playing and creating music with other students at Beaconhills. This year she will study a Bachelor of Music Industry at the Box Hill Institute.

The Melbourne Museum is yet to announce 2021 exhibition dates for Top Designs.
