The Science and Engineering Challenge (the Challenge) is an outreach program aimed at changing student’s perceptions of science and engineering.
Through the Challenge, students experience aspects of these disciplines which they would not usually see in their school environment.
By participating in the Challenge students see that science and engineering involves creativity, innovation, problem solving and team work. The Challenge aims to inspire students to consider a future career in science and engineering by choosing to study subjects such as maths, physics and chemistry in Years 11 and 12.
The Challenge in Hobart will run from Tuesday 19 to Friday 22 May.
