The IpAC Unit will deliver a world-class interprofessional learning environment and community clinic that will develop communication and collaboration among health students and optimise chronic disease self-management for all clients.
Wanneroo GP Super Clinic
The general practice (GP) super clinics are a major health initiative of the Australian Government. ECU and the Faculty of Computing, Health and Science are involved in the development of the Wanneroo GP Super Clinic which will combine research with health provision and lead to new approaches for disease prevention.
ECU Science Experience
Each January the faculty invites 50-60 students about to commence Year 10 to participate in the ECU Science Experience. The three days of action packed science activities are designed to encourage students to pursue science and technology subjects into upper school, and ultimately at a tertiary level.
For more information, visit the Science Experience website.
The LabRats program is run during the Semester 2 mid-semester break, with students from Years 10 or 11 participating in a full-day of science lectures and workshops. The aim of the program is to encourage students to pursue science in upper school, and ultimately at a tertiary level.
STEPUP Peer Tutoring Program
The STEPUP Peer Tutoring Program is an initiative placing high achieving university students into high schools located near the Mount Lawley and Joondalup Campuses of ECU. Our peer tutors volunteer their time and can run study groups or provide one-on-one assistance.
For more information, contact our Community Officer.
WACE Revision Sessions
The faculty conducts a series of WACE revision sessions each year that are designed to assist Year 12 students in their preparation for their final exams. The sessions have proven highly successful and are provided freely to all. Sessions are delivered by senior teachers with markers present at the sessions covering problem solving skills, exam hints, and demonstrations relevant to each subject. Students are given a booklet of worked examples as well as other helpful information. Sessions are run in the third term during school holidays.
National Science Week
In conjunction with National Science Week, each year the faculty organises a series of events designed to boost the community’s interest in science. Popular events include the guest lectures and shopping trolley science where we take science to shopping centres.
