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.
This is a free once in a lifetime opportunity!
- All costs related to travel, accommodation and meals are covered for students and their accompanying adult.
- Participants will have the opportunity to enter the Karnkanthi Indigenous Education Program coordinated by Wirltu Yarlu. This program supports our students throughout their senior years of schooling to prepare them for university by building on their unique personal, academic and cultural strengths.
