A volunteer assists participants in 'The Catapult' activity, which involves constructing a catapult from given materials to launch a squash ball.
The Science and Engineering Challenge is dependent on the support of volunteers over the four days. In 2012, over 60 volunteers were involved from USQ staff and students, members and partners of the Rotary Club of Toowoomba East, Department of Transport and Main Roads and Student Guild staff.
Volunteers are provided with lunch (and a polo shirt for full-day volunteers). They are required from approximately 9.00am to 2.15pm and most stay until 3.00pm to watch the results of the bridge building (Gold Fever) and the final presentations.
If you would like to volunteer for one or more of the 2013 Challenge days (21 to 24 May), please contact Mary McGilvray (Challenge Coordinator).
