Spark, STEM & NYSF

1/09/2016
​Sam & Natasha

​The Spark Engineering Camp empowers students in year 10 to pursue further education pathways and realise their potential! Every activity at Spark is based around engineering, whether it involves building bridges or walking over them. Throughout the week students attended lectures, took part in hands-on practicals, and socialised, similar to a University student. Natasha Langridge and Sam Hook, who were selected to attend stated that the experience was invaluable and has provided an insight into the diverse career pathways in Science.

The Queensland University of Technology Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) camp provides high-achieving year 11 students with an exciting opportunity to attend an interactive 5-day camp, and engage in solving some of the major challenges facing our society and planet today.

This year Elena Postma and Nikola Poli will take advantage of QUT's unique learning environment and have an opportunity to experience ground-breaking research as it happens, inside QUT research facilities in late September, 2016.

Home Hill State High School is extremely proud of these four students' achievements.

Nikola has also been successful in gaining selection to the prestigious National Youth Science Forum in Canberra. Home Hill SHS has had a wonderful representation in NYSF with student selection since 2010. The program will nurture and encourage Nikola to become one of the next generation of leading scientists and engineers supporting a sustainable future for our nation.
