Helping bright young minds thrive
The Scientia Challenge Program features a range of exciting workshops taught over three days designed for gifted and talented high school students in Years 7-10.
Developed and led by practising experts, the workshops follow a university-style investigative structure with intellectually-stimulating content. With the level of study aimed two years higher than the students' grade level, these dynamic workshops offer gifted students a rigorous and challenging program.
The program is held at the UNSW Sydney Campus giving students exposure to university life to help reimagine their future study options and provide opportunities to meet potential role models and mentors. The program also offers a space for gifted students to meet like-minded peers with similar interests.
We were excited to welcome students back to UNSW in January 2021. These programs were especially anticipated after what was an unusual school year for so many. Though things looked a little different (and more physically distanced!) this time, we have been overwhelmed with positive feedback. Thank you to everyone who was involved and supported the programs.
We are currently planning the July 2021 Student Programs. We look forward to sharing details (including dates and available workshops) with everyone soon. To stay up to date with all the latest Student Programs information you can join our mailing list here.
