2016 STEM camp
The 2016 STEM camp saw more than 160 Year 11 students from right across Queensland participating in a range of activities and challenges.
"STEM camp was a great experience that has provided a valuable insight into university life and future career possibilities."
Real world projects
"I enjoyed the forensic anthropology side the most (analysing real human bones) as it is definitely something I have never done before and would never get the opportunity to do at school."
Feeding the future
In the Feeding the Future project, students analysed greenhouse samples to learn how climate change will affect our food sources.
