About | STEMulate 12 - Year 12 Science and Engineering Discovery Day



STEMulate12 provides Year 12 students studying science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) subjects the opportunity to experience practical applications of these topics in a university laboratory setting.
Sessions require students to draw on knowledge from topics they have covered in their Year 12 curriculum for practical problem solving. By applying theory in a real laboratory setting, they gain a better understanding of the theory and its relevance to solving problems.

Students will chose two of the following workshops to complete on the day:
• Aerospace engineering: aircraft performance and flight characteristics
• Biological/biomedical sciences: microscopy and histology
• Biosciences: DNA gel electrophoresis
• Chemical engineering: heat exchange systems used in the chemical processing industry
• Civil engineering: fluid mechanics and hydraulics in open channels
• Computer and digital forensics: code breaking
• Food science and nutrition: creating a healthy smoothie
• Forensic and crime scene investigation: specialist forensic recovery techniques for latent fingerprints and traces of blood
• Instrumentation and control engineering: using a thermistor to design, build and test an instrument to measure temperature
• Mathematics: an exploration of how mathematics can be used to solve real-world problems
• Mechanical engineering: evaluating the strength of materials and viscosity of fluids
• Renewable energies: the fuel cell car challenge
