Unfortunately due to COVID-19 concerns the Ingkarni Wardli Technologies Program has been cancelled for 2021.
Wirltu Yarlu Aboriginal Education at the University of Adelaide, in partnership with the Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences (ECMS), run a holiday program for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander high school students in Years 10, 11 and 12 with an interest in STEM.
Held in Adelaide, this immersive camp gives high school students the opportunity to experience the many different ways that engineering, computer and mathematical sciences can be applied to the real world.
Throughout the camp, students will participate in many fun 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.
This is a free once in a lifetime opportunity!
