School of Science and Technology Events
UNE's Science Outreach events and activities aim to deliver educational, research-led programs to the wider community, including primary, secondary and tertiary students, teachers, and the general public.
Our goal is to enhance the aspirations of students to pursue science as a career, and to encourage the application of scientific concepts to everyday life in areas such as health, technology, agriculture and the environment. Our events and activities develop pathways into science by using new technologies, exciting resources, and innovative approaches to teaching and learning.
For further information on the UNE Science Outreach events and activities, please see our calendar of upcoming events, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
