For Teachers.

What do we offer?


Engage helps university outreach groups to visit your school!

Workshops often fall in the university holiday periods with volunteers typically committing to an entire week of workshops at schools in a particular district or area. Engage will do all the logistical rganisation; all you need to provide is a comfortable space to conduct the workshop, any equipment listed in the workshop briefs, lunch for our volunteers and of course, students!

What Workshop should I choose for my students?

High school students

Robogals is an international, student-run not for profit organisation which aims to inspire women and girls to study and work in engineering and related sciences.

The Robogals workshop is provided by Robogals ANU chapter, which was established in 2011 and has been providing workshops with Lego NXT robots since then.

Robogals workshops use LEGO NXT robots and the easy-to-understand LEGO Mindstorms interface. They’ll have students programming their robots to move within the first 15 minutes! Activities include taping a texta to the front of the robot and writing words out as a class, search and rescue themed obstacle courses using sensors, and a ‘robot wars’ activity using slightly more advanced programming concepts such as loops.

Given the mission of Robogals, it is preferred that classes are all female or majority (more than half) female students.

EWB Australia work with disadvantaged communities to improve their quality of life through education and implementation of sustainable engineering projects.

The ACT chapter of EWB also run workshops in schools to educate students about the issues in these communities and show them how engineering can be used to address these issues.

An EWB workshop involves a short interactive presentation introducing a common issue facing the communities they work in, and then a hands-on activity around the issue. Ideas explored include water filtration, prosthetic limbs, and floating houses.
