NT students experience science
By Sophie Port
Secondary students from across the Northern Territory have experienced a range of science activities at the ConocoPhillips Science Experience at Casuarina campus.
The 100 Year 9 and 10 students from Darwin, Katherine and Arnhem Land engaged in hands-on workshops and other activities during the three-day event, hosted by Charles Darwin University.
Students learned about career pathways offered at CDU, in areas including pharmacy, engineering, aquaculture, medical studies, exercise sports science, environmental science, psychology, and information technology.
Kormilda College student Samuel Roussos said he enjoyed touring the campus facilities, and was interested in finding out about study options in the area of engineering.
“I have always wanted to be an engineer so it’s interesting to learn more about it and see what the university has to offer,” Samuel said.
“The event has been very helpful and I have enjoyed the experience.”
ConocoPhillips sponsored the event in collaboration with Science Schools Foundation, Northern Territory Government, Flinders University, Engineers Australia, Rotary Club of Litchfield and Palmerston, Cameco Australia, Surveying and Spatial Science Institute NT, and NT Member for Goyder Kezia Purick.
