Inspiring the ACT
Engage University Outreach
Engage University Outreach is a Canberra-based not for profit which partners with educational outreach providers running activities in urban centres. They do this by running workshops in regional areas with their partner schools. Their goal is to give students in regional areas the opportunity to meet university students and take part in hands-on workshops that will give them a leg up in their studies and what Engage hopes, their future. In their workshops, students may spend 1-3hrs programming robots, building a water filter suitable for a developing community, creating lenses that turn phone cameras into microscopes, or more!
Robogals ANU is part of an international student-run organisation (Robogals) that aims to increase female participation in Engineering, Science and Technology through fun and educational initiatives aimed at girls in primary/secondary schools and colleges. They currently have chapters at universities across North America, Canada, Australia, the UK, Philippines, Japan and Ireland.
Robogals’ goal is to inspire, engage and empower young women to pursue engineering and STEM in their tertiary studies and careers. They do this by running workshops in computer science, robotics and coding across the ACT and neighbouring regional areas and collaborating with their industry partners.
Engineers Without Borders-ACT Chapter
Engineers Without Borders Australia (EWB) is a member-based, community organisation that creates social value through engineering. Through partnership and collaboration, they’ve focused on developing skills, knowledge and appropriate engineering solutions for over 14 years.
The ACT Chapter at ANU does outreach activities in engineering to schools in the ACT and neighbouring regional areas. They also work closely with industry and overseas charities.
