Designing bridges and running circuits were just two of the challenges students took on at the Science and Engineering Challenge last week.
More than 250 students from eight schools attended the workshop at Mater Dei that was organised by the Rotary Club and CSU to encourage students to study the subjects at university.
Pete Fullagar, one of the team leaders from the Science and Engineering Challenge, said it is important for students to experience the real aspects of these areas of learning.
“It makes them aware of the options that are available in careers in both science and engineering,” he said.
Other activities included: building a hovercraft, wiring a virtual city, designing a suspension buggy and constructing a catapult.
