Over 200 students from the Moreton Bay region will kick-start their STEM Fest challenge for 2018 with hands-on workshop days at Burpengary Secondary College and Deception Bay State High School on 25th and 26th June.

The Moreton Bay STEM Fest is an annual event coordinated by teachers from Murrumba State Secondary College, Deception Bay State High School and Burpengary Secondary College, and supported by QUT’s Science and Engineering Widening Participation program.

“This is QUT’s fourth year being involved in this event”, said Sara Sheather, QUT’s Science and Engineering Widening Participation engagement officer. “Our STEM Ambassadors enjoy being part of the students’ STEM journey over the two months of the competition.”

Science and Engineering Faculty STEM Ambassadors will be there to guide students and act as role models to encourage students into future STEM careers from workshop day, through the six-week inquiry phase and culminating in the Showcase held during National Science Week.

STEM ambassadors workshops on the day will be centred on this year’s themes of sustainable cities, human assistance devices and landfill orchestra.  

“I love to get involved and do the hands-on activities … there is always something new to learn,” one keen Bray Park SHS student commented.

Students from Years 7 to 9 from seven local high schools will be participating in the 2018 STEM Fest.
