The Darling Downs Science and Engineering Challenge is held at USQ each year and allows Year 9 and 10 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.
In 2021, the Challenge will be held over the following four days:
- Monday 24 May
- Tuesday 25 May
- Wednesday 26 May
- Thursday 27 May
Each day, eight different 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'.
