Canberra Chapter Science and Engineering Day 2023

Come along to the Science and Engineering day workshops held by the Robogals Canberra chapter in collaboration with the Science Challenge.

The Robogals Canberra chapter is holding a face-to-face Science and Engineering Day as part of the Robogals Science Challenge competition.

The Robogals Science Challenge is an international outreach initiative run by Robogals Asia Pacific to complement our core workshops and engage young women and gender diverse students aged 5-15 to become involved in STEM beyond the classroom. It aims to promote innovation and exploration through hands-on projects, which can be completed with a friend, parent/guardian, or mentor.

Science & Engineering Days (SEDs) are 1-day workshops where students can participate in different STEM-based workshops with Robogals volunteers. SEDs provide students with an alternative pathway to complete the Robogals Science Challenge. For more details regarding the Robogals Science Challenge please visit our website.

Whilst this event is open to all genders aged 8 - 15 years old we especially encourage girls and gender diverse students to register to align with the core aims of the Science Challenge.
