Last week, Engineers Without Borders Australia, a member-based, community organisation which creates social value through engineering, visited St. Stanislaus’ College as part of their School Outreach Program.

A team of volunteers from the University of New South Wales delivered the program to Year 9 and 10 students.

As part of the program, the volunteers covered different modules including a physics-based renewable energy engineering activity where students create a prototype wind turbine which can be tested to show LED lights glowing proportionally to the energy generated, and a physics and chemistry-based civil engineering activity where students use the concepts of buoyancy to create a structure that floats and holds weight whilst using minimal construction material.
