Primary school experiences
The AIM High outreach program provides a number of experiences for primary schools.
Careers Through Reading
This initiative is designed to complement existing school literacy programs and introduce the concept of careers and study pathways to Year 2 children.
Students in Year 5 are introduced to university and play a leadership role for the younger students.
SMART (Science, Maths and Real Technology)
The SMART program mixes entertainment and education in demonstration based science shows for Year 4 students on the school premises. The aim of the program is to:
- inform, inspire and involve school aged students in science
- provide opportunities for the University's own students to learn and practice the art of science communication.
SMART shows for other year groups can be developed on request.
Discover Uni Day
This opportunity allows Year 6 students and family members to explore the Callaghan campus and interact with staff and students. Students participate in a 'day-in-the-life' of a university student, including a lecture, a tutorial, library session, SMART show and campus scamper.
