Northern Rivers Science and Engineering Challenge

19-21 June 2019

The Northern Rivers Science and Engineering Challenge (NRSEC) aims to inspire and increase students' interest to study science and engineering at a senior level.

The Challenge involves 256 students each day, usually Years 9 and 10, taking part in a series of fun yet challenging and competitive activities that are designed to demonstrate the varied and practical elements of science and engineering.

The Challenge has been hosted by Southern Cross University and the Rotary Club of Alstonville since 2007 and is held annually at SCU Lismore campus.
