Twenty-five Year Nine indigenous students from across WA will get a taste of potential career paths in science and engineering when they visit The University of Western Australia this week.
The students will attend an inaugural school holiday science camp that will provide a hands-on experience with emerging technologies such as nanotechnology and green chemistry to promote sustainability and conservation of the ecology, water, energy and mineral resources.
The aim of the camp is to attract Indigenous students to study science and engineering at UWA and become leaders in solving the problems of tomorrow.
WHAT: The students will be able to be filmed/photographed doing green chemistry and nanotechnology at UWA.
WHEN: 9.15 - 9.45am Tuesday, April 22
WHERE: Meet in foyer of Molecular and Chemical Sciences Building, UWA, 35 Stirling Highway, Crawley. Closest UWA entrance: Hackett Entrance 2, near Anatomy Building. For map, visit http://www.uwa.edu.au/campus_map
