The Darling Downs Science and Engineering Challenge is held at USQ each year and allows students to engage in a set of fun and competitive activities involving principles of science, engineering and technology.
- provides students with a challenge and a selection of materials to complete the set task
- immediately engages students in activities with a minimum of introduction and theory
- allows students to explore scientific principles for themselves rather than being guided to a predetermined answer.
Over four days (May 21-24), more than 1000 students from 30 schools competed in a series
of hands-on activities involving principles of science, engineering and technology at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ) in Toowoomba.
