- About Deakin
The School of Engineering recently played host to the Victoria Zone Science and Engineering Super Challenge. The state-wide competition was held at the Waurn Ponds Campus. Winning schools from the Victorian regional Science and Engineering challenges held earlier this year competed during the two days of the Super Challenge.
Year 9 and Year 10 students from sixteen schools throughout Victoria, including Bendigo, Ballarat, Melbourne and Geelong, took part in a range of hands on science and engineering based activities, showing them science is anything but dull.
Australia has a chronic shortage of scientists and engineers. The Science and Engineering Challenge is a national outreach program conducted by the University of Newcastle with the aim of encouraging junior students to study science at VCE level.
