LabRats is an annual event which provides an opportunity for students and teachers to visit the ECU campus and enjoy a typical day as an ECU university science and math student. Students will participate in several hands-on science workshops, hear from our current students and researchers about the amazing science that is being taught and researched at ECU, as well as some fun social activities to orientate them to and around the campus.
How it works
We want you to explore the many options open to you if you decide to study a science or mathematics discipline at university, so therefore we ask you to come with an open mind and sample a range of science workshops during your visit to our campus. During the workshops, you will meet our current students and researchers and hear about their first-hand experiences of what is it to be a student at ECU and their aspirations for a career in science. A LabRats day could include:
When is it run?
For 2021, we will run 5 days during Term 2, Week 11, between 28 June – 2 July and is open to any student currently in high school Years 9 and 10.
How much does it cost?
LabRats is a free event. We just ask you to bring along your own lunch and snacks, an open mind and willingness to give everyone a go.
How do I register?
We would like to offer as many students the chance to attend, so we ask that you choose one event and select one class (32 max).
