Santos Science Experience

The Science Experience supported by ConocoPhillips and Santos

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. 

Students will participate in hands-on practical learning activities in the areas of Engineering, IT, Environmental Science, Health Science, Exercise Sports Science and the Flinders NT Medical Program and attend seminars and workshops delivered by professionals, where they will experience the amazing virtual and 3D technology being used in the field today.

It is our goal to ensure that students know what to expect as they enter their senior schooling, and of the direct link between their education and future opportunities. We understand that this time in their life is vital, and a positive approach to education can make a world of difference. By providing a solid educational foundation, we are allowing students to make informed decisions regarding subject selection for their senior studies.

The Science Experience is a National program, offered in over 34 Universities and TAFEs across Australia.  CDU is the only place where the cost of participating is not directly passed onto the student.  Our students participate for free!  This is only possible due to the generous support and commitment of our local government, businesses, institutes, industries and community organisations. 

CDU and our program sponsors believe that all students deserve an opportunity to participate, regardless of their academia, where they live or socioeconomic status.  The NT program is aimed at year 9's, and is capped at 100 students. Students can only apply through their school. 

You can view photos from the 2021 event on the Facebook Photo Album.

The 2022 event will be held on the 7-9 June.
