ECM Faculty Focus
The Faculty was greeted by young and inquisitive visitors last week when the Year 9's from Kalamunda SHS and Year 12's from Shenton College visited the University to learn more about the engineering, computing, maths and science courses available at UWA.
Kalamunda SHS explored the campus on Monday 29 June and were treated to activities such as the Swan River model in Environmental Systems Engineering, a insight into the works of the Motorsport Team, and the challenge of the Nim game with Mathematics, before completing their tour with Physics, where the students delved into angular momentum, witnessed the Tesla Coil and experimented with Liquid Nitrogen.
The students from Shenton College toured the university on Wednesday 1 July. The year 12's also enjoyed the sights and sounds of Physics, prior to visiting Computer Science where they discovered virtual worlds and the Mechanical Engineering workshop to disassemble and reassemble engines.
Each day the students were treated to a delicious lunch at St Catherine's College where they learned about and experienced the residential opportunities available, when studying at UWA.
A BIG thank you to all the staff and volunteers who gave up their time to help promote our courses; the feedback received from the students has been very positive and they have left with fun and interesting memories of their visit to UWA.
