?Next Tuesday, 15th March, UoW's Travelling STEM Roadshow will be operating in the MUGA between Buildings 1& 8 from 10.00a.m. to 1.00p.m. The Roadshow is 1 of the 5 STEM initiatives that Bob Wheway and his Team have developed over the last 17 years.
The Roadshow consists of the following 10 x 20 minutes interactive group hands-on activities:
An open-wheeler racing car driver simulator
Making & testing of timber beams
Water storage & flow
A milkshake-making bike
The half-life of radio isotopes
The extraction of the genome of strawberries
Developed in 2012, the major aim of the Roadshow is to promote STEM education to rural/lowSES/ Indigenous High School students.
Between 2012 and 2016, the Roadshow has attracted over $275000 from external sources. It has visited 65 High Schools throughout the whole of NSW and engaged with over 4500 students on these visits.
Our special guests on Tuesday will be students and teachers from ALESCO College and Craig Davis College, Youth Off The Streets.
You are all most welcome to come along on Tuesday to see UoW's Travelling STEM Roadshow in action.
