The ConocoPhillips Science Experience at ECU

The ConocoPhillips Science Experience provides students who have an interest in science with an opportunity to engage in a variety of science activities. An annual event, the Science Experience is hosted by 30 universities and tertiary institutions nationwide and is supported by Rotary.

ECU hosts the ConocoPhillips Science Experience at its Joondalup campus in January each year. The four-day event aims to boost high school students’ interest and participation in science, raise their awareness of science careers, and encourage them to study science in upper school and university.
