Engineering & Science Challenge

Every year the club sends volunteers to the University of the Sunshine Coast to help with the Engineering & Science Challenge.

The Rotarians act as mentors and judges for the competition which attracts hundreds of high school students over two days.

The Engineering and Science Challenge is organised by the University of Newcastle with the support of the Sunshine Coast University and is designed to inspire students in the STEM subjects.

Plus it is great fun seeing the students build strong bridges with extremely light materials thens see how their bridge survives the heavies of train crossings.

There are also teams building catapults, mini robots etc. Great fun to watch and support !!

We’re always looking for people to help out on the judging and facilitating on the day. Contact the club if you are interested.
