Solving problems with engineering
According to the World Economic Forum, by 2030, we’ll have driverless cars on the road. And inside our homes, our fridges, coffee machines and even windows will exchange information through sensors and software – all designed to make our lives easier. It’s a brave new world, all supported by engineering.
The Power of Engineering is delivering interactive workshops to challenge high school students’ perceptions about engineering, as they tackle real-world problems in two workshops:
- Workshop 1: Explores drivers of change for our future world. Students will address one of 100 predicted challenges, creating their solutions and pitching their ideas to an expert panel.
- Workshop 2: Focuses on a Melbourne-specific challenge: rapid population growth. Students will explore how to future-proof our city through the engineering design process.
This event is targeted at students in years 7 to 10, however, all are welcome to attend.
