Moil and Jingili primary schools set to descend onto CDU 


Budding engineers will be competing for top honors at one of the most fun filled events on the Charles Darwin University (CDU) calendar on 20 June at the Casuarina Campus.

Hordes of primary school students will make their way to CDU during EngQuest – a competition held as part of Engineers Australia’s 2006 Engineering Week.

Through a range of activities students will learn skills in team work and communication, design, construction and evaluation.

“EngQuest is an engaging, hands-on way to encourage primary and secondary students interested in engineering, science and technology through innovation and entrepreneurship,” said Bronwyn Russell, Engineers Australia Northern Division Director.

Students from Moil and Jingili primary schools have entered the competition which encourages them to consider the role of engineers in the transformation and control of energy.

EngQuest is a program of Engineers Australia and is supported by the Australian Government through a Science Connections Program Grant administered by the Department of Education, Science and Training.
