UTAS Science and Engineering Challenge

UTAS Science & Engineering Challenge: Bridging Futures into the STEAM Engine Room

At UTAS Sandy Bay Campus 32 Dominic College Year 9 and 10 students joined with over 120 other students from schools last week for a day of competitive critical-thinking STEAM (Science, Engineering, Arts, Technology and Mathematics) activities, aimed at inspiring creativity, innovation, problem-solving and team work.

Making bionic hands, constructing catapults, building bridges, towers and water turbines, code-breaking, and networking problems were just some examples of the many activities on offer for students.

The UTAS Science & Engineering Challenge is an example of the rich, hands-on learning opportunities extended to students here at Dominic College.

I encourage all students to engage with as many of these opportunities as they can to really extend and apply their learning.
