Our main event is open to all students! This day will be filled with a variety of activities to showcase different aspects of engineering. The day will begin with a ‘Speed Engineering’ activity where students can talk to engineers from diverse array of disciplines.
Next up is the highlight event… a Design Challenge! Students will work in teams to design and build a structure to fit the requirements of the challenge set for them. Each design will be tested later in the day in front of the whole group.
Following a pizza lunch (provided for all participants and parents), you can participant in mini-engineering design activities or talk to the people at our showcase where you can learn about student groups and opportunities.
We look forward to seeing everyone for this fun-filled day learning about “What it means to be an engineer”! There will be opportunity to win prizes throughout the day!
Parental supervision is recommended. We encourage participants to bring a water bottle as drinks will only be provided at lunch. There are water fountains throughout the school.
