SEBE Outreach

The Faculty of Science, Engineering and Built Environment (SEBE) is committed to engaging young minds with the possibilities of studying architecture and construction management, engineering, information technology, life sciences and the environment. Our outreach programs and activities give secondary school students the opportunity to experience a range of interactive and hands-on programs and workshops across our study areas.

Program update

Our 2022 Outreach programs and activities have been confirmed for 2022. Thank you for your support. Please continue to check the website for any updates.

Our programs

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.

The 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

SEBE work experience program

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.

Science and Engineering Challenge

A nationwide STEM program, students compete in engaging hands-on activities involving principles of science, engineering and technology.

Forensic Detective Program

Year 9 and 10 students participate in an interactive workshop program, completing activities related to forensic science including a visit to our Crime Scene House facility.

School Experience Program

An exciting hands-on program, Year 10 students who have an interest in science and the environment take part in a day of interactive activities.

Activities and workshops

Our activities and workshops are grouped into four areas reflecting SEBE’s four schools: architecture and built environment, engineering, information technology, and life and environmental sciences. These often complement secondary school curriculum studies, and provide a hands-on experience for students to apply their problem solving and teamwork skills, introduce tertiary education opportunities and highlight future career pathways.

We are also currently exploring alternative ways to bring our activities to your school.
