Hands On Engineering and IT

Introduce your Year 10 students to engineering and technology concepts and issues through our interactive workshops, held on campus.

In light of the emerging COVID-19 situation and continuing policy statements from the State and Federal Government, the University is adopting a series of changes to reduce rates of infection in the community. At this stage, the NCSS Summer School dates are not affected, but please sign up for updates:

The University will continue to follow expert health advice and will continue to make decisions about its activities which are in the best interests of the health, safety and well-being of the entire University community.
