High school students in grades 10–12 are invited to apply to attend this year’s Spark Engineering Camps, to be held in Melbourne and Brisbane in June–July.
Spark Engineering Camps are an initiative of the organisation Youth Without Borders. The camps provide high school students from ‘non-traditional backgrounds’ (e.g. those from minority groups, experiencing difficulties in mainstream schooling, or from communities with low participation in tertiary education) with an experience of university life and an introduction to the opportunities available through a career in engineering.
Participants in the camps will spend a week participating in lectures, hands-on activities and social events under the guidance of trained mentors who are university students or have completed degrees in engineering-related fields.
