It's not that often you get the opportunity to scrub up for surgery, conduct a water filtering experiment for Engineers Without Borders and analyse 'scat' samples, but for 20 lucky students who attended the inaugural Peel Days at UWA in the October school holidays, it was all in a day's work!
Peel Days at UWA was established to give Year 10 and 11 students from various schools in the Peel region the opportunity to experience life as a university student over two fun-filled days. From the train and bus journey to UWA; through to a wide range of workshops and hands-on activities to show students what studying at UWA would be like.
In addition to experiencing life as a Medicine, Engineering and Science student first-hand, a highlight of the event was the photo scavenger hunt on the final day. This required the students to explore the campus in small groups and gather photo or video evidence of themselves at various nominated buildings and landmarks, with groups earning extra points for particularly creative shots.
The final activity in the Arts Multimedia Lab allowed students to then compile their images captured over the two days to create and present a short video of their experience at UWA.
