The ConocoPhillips Science Experience

26-28 September

FedUni with field trip

Cost $150 incl. GST Registration Essential

Attention all Yr 9 and 10 students, this one is for you. If you have an interest in STEM-science, technology, engineering and maths you are not alone. During these 3 days students from across Gippsland and sometimes even further will come together to take part in hands on workshops, head out on a field trip and learn where your interest can take you in the future. This is your invitation to be part of the group-even if you have been before, come back again, we rarely repeat ourselves. Use the link to find out more and talk to your local Rotary Club about how they can help you with your registration fees. Make it happen.

Collaboration and networking

We continue our collaboration with state and Australia wide bodies to bring science teaching and learning and student engagement opportunities to Gippsland throughout each year.
