Do you or does someone you know need a ‘Spark’?
Maybe you are from regional Queensland and can’t travel to a university very easily? Maybe you are from a minority group? Or a community that doesn’t see many people go to university? Maybe you have considered university and engineering before? .. or maybe not. If you would like to experience what engineering has to offer, then Spark is for you!
Spark Engineering Camp offers an opportunity to grade 10, 11 and 12 students who might not otherwise have considered going to university, or might not have had a chance to see what engineering is about. To this end, all student costs are covered by the camp and students from regional Queensland and further afield are offered transport to and from the camp at no personal cost.
Spark is a week-long residential camp, based at the University of Queensland campus at St Lucia in the June/July holidays. Previously the program has included workshops from Engineers Without Borders, CSIRO, Robogals, and the UQ Race Team, and numerous other educational, team-building and personal development activities. “Sparkies” will get a sense of university life whilst learning about engineering through many hands-on activities in a fun environment. This ‘Spark’ will light up new opportunities and help to each student to realise their potential.
Applications are not yet open for the Spark Engineering Camp 2013, but feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information.
