Engineering Link Project 2019
Melbourne (La Trobe University) – April
Melbourne (La Trobe University) – Sept 23 & 24
An ELP lasts for two days, with each day following a similar format. Students select a discipline they are interested in and they spend the day working in that area.
Projects are offered to Year 10, 11 and 12 students, depending on the location.
Over the course of each day, the students complete a proposal detailing the problem, test results and the recommended solution which is assessed by the guest engineer. The students then build their final solution and test it, usually to destruction, before debriefing again with the engineer.
During the Project, the students tour the host university, inspecting facilities and observing current research projects and highlights of each faculty.
