The Program. It’s an experience of a lifetime!

So what will we be doing during the time at Spark?
Every activity at Spark is based around engineering, whether we are building bridges or walking over them. Throughout the week students will attend lectures, take part in hands on practicals, and socialise, similar to a University student.

Some of the most popular activities include the Story Bridge Climb, keynote speeches from prominent engineers, the disco, and the powering cities workshop in which teams of students were given the opportunity to put their skills to the test in constructing an electrical network for a suburb.

Eligibility. Who can apply?

Do you, or does someone you know need a ‘Spark’?

Are you from a community that doesn’t see many people go to university? Do you identify as part of a minority group? Are you passionate about learning but find the ‘traditional’ school environment challenging - or even boring? Maybe you have considered university and engineering before? .. or maybe not. If you would like to experience what engineering has to offer, then Spark is for you!
