Regional Science and Engineering Challenge

Please note 2018 registrations have now reached capacity.
When
22 - 25 MAY 2018
Where
Clive Berghofer Recreation Centre

The Darling Downs Science and Engineering Challenge is held at USQ each year and allows students to engage in a set of fun and competitive activities involving principles of science, engineering and technology. The challenge:

  • provides students with a challenge and a selection of materials to complete the set task
  • immediately engages students in activities with a minimum of introduction and theory
  • allows students to explore scientific principles for themselves rather than being guided to a predetermined answer.

Each day eight schools will compete against each other. At the end of the four days, the team with the most points will receive a trophy and go on to compete at the State Final 'Super Challenge'.
