UTS Science in Focus: The UTS Challenge
Want to meet some inspiring young scientists? Love competing in trivia, and want to help your school win BIG?
Join us this National Science Week for UTS Science in Focus, where you’ll hear from a line-up of leading young Science Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM) researchers, who are solving the world’s most urgent issues.
From creating new diagnostic technologies to detect diseases through our breath, using Manuka honey to heal wounds, to creating novel forensic technologies to assist the national security of our country—our STEM researchers are applying their science and maths skills to improve the world we live in.
You’ll have the chance to ask them questions, and find out what you can do now to set yourself on a path to a rewarding career in science or maths.
Then, strap yourself in for the Ultimate Trivia Super (UTS) Challenge! Each table of ten students (plus max of two teachers) will compete in a fun science and maths trivia session.
Get some extra study done in the lead-up to the UTS Challenge, and listen carefully to our researchers for your chance to win some BIG prizes for yourself! We’re giving away a $500 JB Hi-Fi voucher to the winning school, students will have the chance to win $30 gift vouchers + there will be games and other prizes!
This event is part of the Sydney Science Festival as part of National Science Week.
