Our outreach programs have a focus on STEM-related subjects (science, technology, engineering and maths), and the wide range of career options they can offer.
Our programs are designed to inspire young people to identify the value and application of STEM (maths, science, design, IT) subjects at a secondary school level. We aim to highlight the wide range of career opportunities, familiarising students with opportunities and allowing them to engage in hands-on activities in a real university environment.
Our work experience programs are designed for groups of students to participate. Individual work experience placements are generally not available for secondary students.
Work Experience Programs
Our work experience programs are structured for students to experience hands-on activities that will enable them to get an insight into a wide range of STEM career opportunities.
