Learning in Science

An invitation to budding engineers

Students are encouraged to engineer their future with the help of Massey University.

How do engineers approach problems? Your students are invited to Massey University to find out.

‘Engineering Your Future’ is a four day, intensive learning camp for year 11 to year 13 students. The camp will take place from Monday 7 to Thursday 10 July, at Massey’s Albany and Palmerston North sites.

Participating students will work on an engineering challenge, set in the year 2070, and through this will get the chance to interact with Massey engineering students and staff and perhaps even win some prizes. They will also have the opportunity to view demonstrations of the latest engineering technologies, including rapid prototyping and laser cutting.

The problem-solving nature of the course encourages deep creative thinking and interpersonal and teamwork skills. There will also be some technical drawing and Photoshop lessons.

In the evenings, students will be fully supervised by staff, and get the chance to partake in a range of social activities, such as LAN gaming, bowling, and more.

All students attending the camp will be awarded a Massey University Certificate for their school portfolio, and will have a good idea of what they can experience and achieve by undertaking the Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) programme when they leave school.

For more information, including camp costs, and to register for the camp, visit  http://seat.massey.ac.nz/camp   

Massey University also has full-fees scholarships on offer, worth up to $30,000. Email the engineering department to find out more.
