Northern Rivers Discovery Day

24-26 June 2019

Just like the Science and Engineering Challenge for high school students, Discovery Day aims to provide meaningful, hands-on experiences that challenge young people to make a difference in the world by choosing a career in science and engineering. Discovery Day is designed for year 5-6 (NSW stage 3) students which features up to 8 short engaging and hands-on science and engineering activities; simple 1-page notes and scoring; and an integral teacher's professional development workshop.
