High school outreach

Your gateway from high school to university

Our academics and Faculty Communicators, (current engineering and computer science students) are skilled at bringing your high school curriculum to life. 

We offer a number of educational experiences that can be delivered as incursions on your school campus either in class or as a before or after school activity. 

Our incursions are offered as a one-hour standard session or an extended version for more in-depth exploration of the theme. 

We can also host your school at the University of Sydney where they will have the opportunity to engage with our high end facilities and have a true engineering campus experience. We offer half-day and full-day excursions to campus. 

Our experiences are aligned to the following areas of study:  

  • Engineering studies 

    We can run a session in the field of telecommunications engineering, civil engineering, and biomedical engineering. 

  • Enterprise Computing 

    We offer an interactive class in the Principles of Cybersecurity .

  • Science and the environment 

    We offer a number of classes in the areas of hydrogen, solar and clean energy and well as water purification and filtration. 

Student events

Throughout the year we hold a number of informative sessions and visits including hands-on activities held on campus. Please view our calendar of events for more information. 

Incursion

In this interactive lesson, students are given an overview of engineering mechanics, mass and force, simple machines and how mathematical methods are used to solve problems in engineering. Students will be provided with kits to assemble complex structures out of magnets and springs and see them deform. They will build a tall building, and then put it onto a shaking table provided by the demonstrator to witness the force that it can withstand prior to collapsing. 

Excursion

Join us for a day of learning focused on space exploration.  

Our world-leading academics will give an interactive overview on recent trends in satellite communications. 

Students will experience the thrill of space engineering as our award-winning engineering society guides them through building a real rocket. 

They will then access our state-of-the-art labs to conduct satellite communication experiments to understand how communication with spacecraft happens.
