Science and Engineering Challenge Discovery Day - Cancelled

This event has been cancelled. This is due to the fact that the event is a collaboration between University of Southern Queensland and University of Newcastle, and the difficulties entering Queensland from New South Wales.

USQ is thrilled to be hosting the Darling Downs Science and Engineering Challenge Discovery Day for Years 5/6 students. This is the first time USQ will be hosting this event. Discovery Days aim to challenge students to consider a career in Science or Engineering and make requisite subject selections at high school.

There is no cost to enter the event in 2021, however this event may incur a registration fee in future years. Please note one team is permitted from each school. Each school can bring a team of between 16 and 32 Year 5 and/or 6 students. It is important that each school sends a suitable number of teachers to supervise students. Each team will be split into 8 colour-coded groups of 2 to 4 students.

Please note students will be required to bring their own lunch and a 30 minute lunch break will be scheduled.
