Outreach for Schools

The EPECentre, in partnership with the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, organises events or provides resources for high school students and teachers, including:

  • Young Physicists Tournament: regular involvement in the regional or national competition. Two EPECentre Staff participated as judges to the regional Young Physicists Tournament in March 2019.
  • Visits in UC Electrical and Computer Engineering Labs for Y12/13 students with interactive demos and hands-on experiment. It usually happens at the end of Term 2 (school calendar) and during University mid-year break. More information here.
  • Support to Physics Teachers through Learning resources, educational videos and workshops. For instance, check the 10 online educational videos in alignment with the NCEA curriculum on our website.
