The Faculty of Science & Engineering is committed to providing opportunities for future scientists and engineers as well as their educators to learn new skills, meet like-minded people and spark their excitement for science and engineering.
With workshops, camps, excursions, incursions and competitions for students and teachers, the Outreach program aims to get more young people interested in science and engineering.
So whether you are a student, a teacher or a family, Curtin has a range of Outreach events, programs or videos uncovering the amazing possibilities in science and engineering:
- Teachers can undertake professional development or explore the full range of Outreach excursions, workshops and events available.
- Families can take part in one of our Community Outreach programs to ignite their child’s interest in science and engineering.
- Students who need help with chemistry or maths, can view Outreach videos by our passionate academics.
