Ingkarni Wardli Technologies Program

Are you curious about how things work? Do you want to create solutions for our communities most challenging problems?

Wirltu Yarlu Aboriginal Education at the University of Adelaide, in partnership with the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology run a program for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander high school students in Years 9, 10, 11 and 12 with an interest in STEM.

Held on Kaurna Land on our North Terrace Campus, this immersive camp gives high school students the opportunity to experience the many different ways that science, engineering, architecture, mathematics and/or computer science  can be applied to the real world.

Throughout the camp, students will participate in many engaging activities and hands-on experiences to broaden their understanding of engineering, including coding activities, playing with robots, meeting industry representatives and more!

We will show you and your companion the sights that Adelaide has to offer and what student life is like at the University of Adelaide.
