ExperimentFest

For the more than 20 years, the Faculty of Science has been working with local high schools to provide authentic, engaging and hands-on experiences for HSC students.

For those studying Stage 6 Biology, Chemistry and Physics, ExperimentFest is the chance to improve laboratory skills and use specialised equipment that isn't readily available in regular classrooms, while conducting experiments that directly relate to the HSC syllabus.

Times and dates

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

Dates and details become available in February.
