With activities from a black-tie dinner celebrating women in engineering, though to site tours, through to forums on major projects there’s an awful lot going on. There a range of activities designed to promote engineering including a bridge building competition.
“Can your school build the strongest bridge out of balsa wood, cardboard, string and glue? Would your students benefit from learning about engineering in a fun and practical way? Aurecon, an engineering, management and specialist technical services consultancy, is running a model bridge competition for year 8 and 9 school students throughout NSW and ACT. Cash prizes for winning schools and students. Numbers are strictly limited.”
There’s a refreshing focus on women in engineering, although I have to say that “Be treated like a queen at the Women in Engineering High Tea during Australian Engineering Week.” rings a bit off.
