ExperimentFest 2019

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.

Cost

$30 per student per session. A student role and supervising teacher will be required from each school attending as a mandatory condition of entry.

Bookings and Payment

For all sessions, you will be required to book your tickets online through the Eventbrite online booking system, the same as last year.
This online system will allow you to view the number of tickets available and the number of tickets sold for every session to enable you to choose the session/s which best suit your needs.

Please ensure that you book as early as possible to increase your chances of securing your preferred session/s.

Once you have booked, you will have the ability to cancel tickets or book additional tickets up until the final booking deadline of midnight Sunday 2 June 2019.
After this time, no further changes can be made and you will be invoiced for the number of tickets you have reserved and you will be required to send through a completed Class List of the attending students’ names, which is a mandatory condition of entry to ExperimentFest for Work Health and Safety purposes.
