    19/10/2017
    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 mid-western 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.

Description:
Students at Canobolas High School enjoy a quality learning experience and success in academic, sporting and cultural endeavours. Our community encourages safe, responsible, respectful learners within a culture of integrity. The school has an enrolment of 660 students, including approximately 28% Aboriginal students.  The school receives funding to support student learning outcomes through the Resource Allocation Model. Improvement in the areas of literacy and numeracy are a major focus for the school. The school shows strong growth in both literacy and numeracy. The school has a strong focus on academically talented programs for students across all key learning areas. A high performance athletes program called Canobolas High Performance Athletes Program (CHPA) is also a fundamental feature of the school. A strong student welfare structure exists within the school and this is managed by a committed learning support team. A curriculum collaboration called e2 between the five public secondary schools provides the broadest choice of senior subjects. It is based on the principle of Every Student, Every Opportunity, Every Day. The school has an extensive transition program with its local primary schools. The school also has strong links with the Western Institute of TAFE and Charles Sturt University and is well supported by industry in the delivery of a full range of accredited vocational education and training programs. The school prides itself in forming productive partnerships with parents and the wider community. We work with the community to establish a shared focus on student engagement in learning as we know that this will lead to improved student retention and higher educational achievement.
