Bega Valley students to participate in science and engineering challenge

Science Challenge

Far South Coast students are gearing up for a day of problem solving when the ‘Science and Engineering Challenge’ from the University of Newcastle comes to the Bega Valley for the first time on Friday.

School students from across the region will gather at the Sapphire Coast Turf Club for the competition supported by Bega Valley Shire Council and Bega Rotary.

The students will explore scientific principles and solve engineering puzzles which will include building bridges, wiring cities, creating mars rovers, constructing earthquake
proof towers and building a bionic hand, with expert staff on hand to help mentor them.

Bega Rotary president Charlie Blomfield says it aims to encourage and inspire the students into a career in science or engineering.
