An exciting educational event that encourages a love of learning among primary school students will be held at the University of the Sunshine Coast on Saturday 3 May.
The Explorama program, sponsored by USC, and run by Kids College Queensland, brings gifted and talented children together to challenge their critical thinking, problem-solving skills and creativity in a choice of 18 one-day workshops.
Jason Green from Kids College Queensland said Explorama created an opportunity for USC to connect with students of the future, exposing high achievers to potential academic aspirations.
“The Explorama program has been developed for the primary-school-aged, problem-solving, creative, intellectual child,” Mr Green said.
At Explorama, students can choose to delve into the ancient world through programs such as Medieval Madness and An Egyptian Adventure, or take part in Fun with Maths and Scratch Computer programming. There are also workshops for forensic science, drama, creative writing, art, marine biology and law.
USC Vice-Chancellor Professor Greg Hill said the event provided some great learning opportunities.
“Explorama gives bright, young students a choice of inspirational and challenging educational activities on the USC campus,” Professor Hill said.
This will be the third year that USC has sponsored and hosted Explorama. It will held on Saturday 3 May from 8.45am to 3pm.
Online registrations are open until 18 April or send inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
