Science & Engineering Challenge – for adults!

The Science and Engineering Challenge is a nationwide program usually aimed at schools. Teams of students face a series of challenges with a time limit. Dungog schools were among the first to be involved – and now we’re holding our own challenge – for adults!

Get your team of 6-8 together now. You’ll face 3 great challenges (will it be Bridges, Catapults, Stringways, Grasping at Straws, Electricity?) and compete against the other teams.

Dungog High students will be there, not competing but acting as helpers, marshals, mobile phone cheater-catchers, mentors and judges.

How to enter. Get your 6-8 team member names, nominate one easy-to-contact captain, pick a name and send it to, with contact details. Spectators welcome but no helping!

When: 9.30 arrival for a 10am start, Saturday 17 March 2018. The event will finish by 2pm.

Where: Multipurpose Centre at Dungog High School. Entry via Chichester Dam Rd.

Cost: free.

Lunch: you can purchase a sausage sizzle. Dungog Lions Club will be running the barbecue.

Limited places – get in early.

The schools’ Science and Engineering Challenge is a STEM* outreach program presented by the University of Newcastle in partnership with communities, Rotary clubs, universities and sponsors. Big thank you to John Walton, event organiser.
