Karnkanthi Indigenous Engineering School
Are you curious about how things work? 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 Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences (ECMS), run an Engineering School for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander high school students in Years 11 and 12.
Held in Adelaide, this immersive camp gives high school students the opportunity to experience the many different ways that engineering can be applied to the real world.
Throughout the camp, students participate in many fun activities and hands-on experiences to broaden their understanding of engineering, including coding activities, playing with robots, site visits, 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 adult accompanying.
- 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.
- Prize draws will occur during the week.
