15 October 2016: Workshop “Radical Engineering: Building stuff & then pulling it apart” for school students from South Auckland
STEM-TEC organised and ran a workshop on engineering at AUT's South Campus for South Auckland school students. The workshop was a part of the STEM-TEC and CoLab project "STEMpreneurial Bugs for South Auckland Youth" supported by a $25,000 grant from the Ministry for Business, Innovation and Employment within the New Zealand government initiative "Unlocking Curious Minds". There were very engaging hands-on activities on flying paper airplanes and building wave machines using jelly babies run by Associate Professor David Wilson. The students were inspired by Paul Elliott's talk on his journey in engineering and entrepreneurial presentations by Dr Jonathan Currie and Alan Brannigan. Three prizes (vouchers of $70, $50 and $30) were given to the most active participants.
