Aspiring scientists can get the full scientific experience at the upcoming CSIRO bootcamp.

Forget fitness bootcamps, the CSIRO bootcamp is a chance to experience life as a scientist. Students in Years 8 – 10 will go behind the scenes at Australia’s premier science agency, exploring laboratories, meeting researchers, designing and building prototypes and channeling their inner forensic scientist. The theme for the bootcamp is Sound – think acoustics, amplifiers and personal electronics.

The event is not a drill but an opportunity for students to experience real science, guided by real researchers.┬áThe two day bootcamp is on from 27 – 28 April, 2017 at CSIRO Waite. The cost for the event is $250 and is only available to students in Years 8 – 10. Bookings are essential.
