Science and Engineering Challenge Illawarra and South East Region
July 29, 2019 @ 9:00 am - July 31, 2019 @ 3:00 pm
The University of Wollongong and the Office of the Chief Scientist and Engineer are proud to host the 2019 Illawarra and South East Region Science and Engineering Challenge.
The Science and Engineering Challenge is a nationwide STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) program. It offers students in years 9 or year 10 a series of fun and competitive activities involving principles of science, technology, engineering and maths.
A competitive environment is created as representative school teams are pitted against each other and against the clock in a range of science and engineering tasks. The concept is to immediately engage students in the activity with a minimum of introduction and theory. Students will explore scientific principles for themselves rather than being guided to a predetermined answer. The Challenge is designed to inspire students to study science and engineering at a senior level.
The event is proudly supported by the following program partners: Office of the Chief Scientist and Engineer, Defence Force Recruiting, University of Wollongong, University of Newcastle and the Wollongong Rotary Club.
Congratulations to event winners St Patrick’s College Sutherland, Keira High School and Santa Sabina College. These schools represented the region in the state finals in Newcastle. Well done to Keira High School who progressed through the state finals to compete in the National Finals held in Darwin.
RSVP: Registration will open at 9.00am on 2 April and close 10 May or earlier if all available places have been filled.
Cost: $440 per school
