Science and Engineering Challenge

23 - 26 MAY 2023
UniSQ Toowoomba Campus | Clive Berghofer Recreation Centre

The Science and Engineering Challenge is held at UniSQ each year and allows Year 9 and 10 students to engage in a set of fun and competitive activities involving principles of science, engineering and technology. The Challenge:

  • provides students with a challenge and a selection of materials to complete the set task
  • immediately engages students in activities with a minimum of introduction and theory
  • allows students to explore scientific principles for themselves rather than being guided to a predetermined answer.
Date: Tuesday 23 May - Friday 26 May
Time: 9:30am - 2:30pm
Venue: UniSQ Toowoomba Campus | Clive Berghofer Recreation Centre
Registration: $440 (Inc. GST) per school
Registration close: 30 March 2023

Each day, eight different schools will compete against each other. At the end of the four days, the team with the most points will receive a trophy and go on to compete at the State Final 'Super Challenge'.
