ExperimentFest 2019

The Faculty of Science's ExperimentFest was a huge success in 2019 with more than 1300 students participating.

This unique program is designed for HSC students who are studying Biology, Chemistry and Physics and aims to improve their skills and knowledge using a hands-on approach for a range of experiments and concepts. Each session 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.

Sessions were held in late June at Callaghan campus and early July at the Ourimbah campus.

ExperimentFest Handbooks

ExperimentFest handbooks detail the experiments and are utilised in the sessions as a resource for both students and teachers.
