CDU Science Experience

 A three-day science, engineering and technology event where students will explore the fantastic careers, study and employment opportunities offered to them right here in the NT. 

Charles Darwin University (CDU) is one of 34 universities in Australia who host the annual Science Experience. The event program is open to any year 9 student who may be interested in learning more about science, engineering, and information technology, regardless of their academia. CDU is committed to supporting and encouraging participation from students of Indigenous or low socioeconomic status (SES) background, regardless of their current year level. Each year, we secure additional sponsorship to support the travel costs of transport, meals, and accommodation for remote students.

CDU acknowledges that our success relies on sponsorship from our national sponsor, the Science Schools Foundation, NT Government, local and intrastate business, and community organizations. This support ensures all NT students have the opportunity to participate in this event, not just those who have the financial means.

The 2024 event will be held from 4-6 June on our Casuarina Campus.
