    9:00 am - 3:00 pm

The Engineering Link Group is proud to provide hands-on engineering experiences to Physics, Mathematics and Engineering Studies students of northern New South Wales.  Engineers from the local community, in partnership with the local group of Engineers Australia and Defence Force Recruiting, will meet and work with you.

For Year 9 and 10 students, this is an ideal way to see if engineering is a career for them, and to inspire them to study Physics, Engineering Studies and importantly, senior Mathematics.

For Year 11 students, who are getting closer to making career decisions, they can also experience real engineering, as well as confirm why they are studying maths, science and engineering.

Students from Year 9, 10 and 11 are welcome to register, either individually through this site, or as a class group. 

TEACHERS – you can register a group of students by downloading our simple form – click here.  The school will be invoiced after we receive the form.   We will send you a media release form for each student prior to the event.

An ELP follows the design – make – appraise model of problem solving, so each group will fully prepare their solution on paper, present it to the engineer for approval and then have the opportunity to construct their solution.  Each group’s solution will be tested to ensure it meets the criteria set, then extended beyond the scope of the design, usually to destruction!

Students will participate in two modules during the day, facilitated by local engineers and scientists.

Students can choose from disciplines such as:

* electrical engineering
* civil engineering
* mechanical engineering

TELG will also provide information about engineering and science degrees at local and metropolitan universities.
