For girls who love maths and science, the second week in January is shaping up to be fun and inspirational. UNSW runs an annual Women in Engineering Camp for girls in year 11 and 12 who want to get a taste of what it means to be an engineer. Hands-on activities, problem solving and field trips are all on the agenda for the young women who attend. They also get to stay on campus for the week and experience what uni life is really like. During all of this, the participants make new friends who have similar interests and even mingle with current students and successful engineers working at the uni and in industry.
The 2015 camp runs from Monday 12 to Friday 16 January 2015. Applications open on Tuesday 5 August 2014.
