ECU is calling all high school students with an interest in science.
Designed for students in years 9 and 10, the ECU Science Experience is a two-day event that gives participants the chance to learn first-hand what it means to study science at university.
Students will get to meet senior lecturers, perform experiments in ECU’s state-of-the-art laboratories and hear from experts across a range of different areas.
· An insight into the ECU motorsports program, run in ECU’s brand new engineering building;
· A close up look at reptiles and snakes, led by ECU snake expert Marcus Cosentino; and
· The key to sports analysis, led by Dr Fadi Ma’ayah, Coordinator of the Sport Science and Football course.
For Josephine Day from Kalgoorlie-Boulder Community High School the Science experience is a family tradition. Her two older sisters took part in previous years, and she really enjoyed the chance to come to Perth to participate last year.
“Coming from Kalgoorlie, there’s still options, but not as many of them so it’s a really good experience,” she said.
The two-day ECU Science Experience takes place from Tuesday, 15 to Thursday, 17 January at ECU’s Joondalup Campus.
Registrations are now open to year 9 and 10 students from across WA.
