SCHOOL OUTREACH PROGRAMMES

| Connecting students and teachers to our network of engineers


The aim of our school outreach programmes is to
introduce students and teachers to interesting opportunities in engineering, and showcase the wide range of work of our engineering staff and students.

 

Classroom Workshops

Our one hour workshops are run by female undergraduate students currently studying engineering.
They are designed to give high school students a hands-on experience to apply their knowledge of physics, maths and coding.

Senior Physics

Circuits & Motors: Students build their own DC motor or static electricity sensor using electrical components and a breadboard

 

Senior Calculus

Smart Carts: Students collect data about the motion of our Smart Carts and use mathematical skills to solve a problem. 

Junior Maths

Aqualibrium: Students plan and build a water distribution network with pipes, calculating flow rates to ensure tanks are filled up at the same time

Junior Coding

Spheros: Students are introduced to coding by navigating a robot through a maze using an app

Presentations and Panels

Our students and alumni are available for engineering career presentations or panel discussions to give high school students an idea on what working in or studying engineering is like, and what they need to be prepared for if they are considering a career in engineering.

This is suitable for a classroom, assembly or school event.

Subject Support

We can provide extra academic assistance in Maths (Algebra & Calculus) and Science (Physics) for your student. All of our tutors are current engineering students who are willing to work with your students to revise content, prepare for upcoming assessments and share what it’s like to be an engineering student at the University of Auckland. This can be held in your classroom or after-school programs.

If you or your school is interested in organising a session, please following the link below.
