2013 Regional Science and Engineering Challenge
Purpose of the Challenge
The Darling Downs Science and Engineering Challenge is held at USQ each year. It:
provides students with a challenge and a selection of materials to complete the set task
immediately engages students in activities with a minimum of introduction and theory
allows students to explore scientific principles for themselves rather than being guided to a predetermined answer.
How is the Challenge judged?
Each day eight schools will compete against each other. At the end of each day, the team with the most points will receive a trophy and the three highest scoring teams from throughout the Challenge will go on to compete in the Super Challenge against teams from northern New South Wales and Brisbane.
The 2013 Challenge will be held from Tuesday 21 May to Friday 24 May 2013. Nominations are now being invited from schools to participate in 2013.
