Do you want an exciting way to show your students science and engineering in a new light?
Consider the Science and Engineering Challenge!!
The Science and Engineering Challenge is an outreach program conducted by the University of Newcastle and hosted by James Cook University in conjunction with Rotary International. Aimed at Year 10 students, it involves approximately 520 students in Townsville (North Queensland Challenge) and 260 in Cairns (Far North Queensland Challenge) engaging in a number of fun and exciting activities relating to science, engineering and technology.
Real hands-on stuff with no right or wrong answers. It is just you and your team using your knowledge in Engineering and Science (along with your hands) to solve puzzles. This is no pen and paper test - this is all about your problem-solving skills and how you work in a team.
The Challenge is held over 1 (Cairns) or 2 (Townsville) days and encompasses 8 activities- some half day, some full day. The idea is to compete against schools in your region - the overall winner of each days competition will be crowned the winner and head off to compete in the Super (State-wide) Challenge held in August each year. Win that and your team will then have the chance to compete with schools from all over Australia, in the Grand National Challenge!
