Planning for the day

Students do not need to prepare anything before attending our workshops. For full-day visits, there is a 30-45 minute lunch break. Students can bring their own lunch or buy lunch from one of the food outlets on campus.

While the workshop is fully-funded, schools are responsible for organising their own travel to and from the Gardens Point Campus. The workshop will be held in the Science and Engineering Centre, P Block, QUT Gardens Point campus. See our Gardens Point campus map for directions.

Health and safety

A class must be accompanied by at least one school staff member, who must remain with the school group at all times while you're on campus. The staff member will be responsible for the welfare and behaviour of their students.

Enclosed footwear must be worn by all staff and students participating in workshops.
