The University of Newcastle invites schools to participate in the 13th annual ExperimentFest

ExperimentFest 2017

The University of Newcastle invites schools to participate in the 16th annual ExperimentFest.

ExperimentFest is a unique program designed for HSC students to improve their skills and knowledge using a hands-on approach for selected difficult experiments and concepts.

Each activity provides students with an opportunity to use equipment that isn't available at many high schools and conduct experiments that directly relate to the HSC syllabus.

Organised by the Faculty of Science, ExperimentFest provides an enriching educational experience for senior high school students who are studying Biology, Chemistry or Physics.

Places fill fast so reserve your tickets online to secure your preferred session/s at this year's ExperimentFest.
