Northern Territory year 9 students spent three days participating in various STEM-related activities and workshops at Charles Darwin University (CDU) as part of the Santos Science Experience from 21 to 23 September 2021. Approximately 100 students participated in activities including medical, health, exercise and sports science, engineering, aquaculture, trades, oil and gas and virtual reality technology.
Students heard from CDU lecturers and teaching staff at the College of Health and Human Sciences and College of Engineering, IT and Environment, and interacted with researchers from the Research Institute for Environments and Livelihoods.
“Through the wide variety of workshops and activities, students will get a big picture of what it is like to be studying a STEM course at CDU and pursuing a career in the field.”
- Ms Jaime McCartney, Future Student Engagement Officer
The Santos Science Experience is an annual program hosted by the university since 2006. It is designed to inspire school students to consider study and career pathways through familiarising themselves with the courses and facilities available at CDU.
