We’ve had students from all over Australia!

Check out the map below to see where our students have come from in the past. Every year we expand our reach, so if you see your school listed below it means someone that you may already know has had the opportunity to attend Spark! We would recommend asking your school teachers to find out who they are and who nominated them so that you can get a first hand perspective into what Spark maybe like for you. If you don’t see your school below, that means we haven’t had students from your area before and that’s exciting! Get in touch with us if you are interested in finding out more about by contacting Patrick our Students Coordinator.

The Program. It’s an experience of a lifetime!

So what will we be doing during the time at Spark?
Every activity at Spark is based around engineering, whether we are building bridges or walking over them. Throughout the week students will attend lectures, take part in hands on practicals, and socialise, similar to a University student.

Some of the most popular activities include the Story Bridge Climb, keynote speeches from prominent engineers, the disco, and the powering cities workshop in which teams of students were given the opportunity to put their skills to the test in constructing an electrical network for a suburb.

Eligibility. Who can apply?

Do you, or does someone you know need a ‘Spark’?

Are you from a community that doesn’t see many people go to university? Do you identify as part of a minority group? Are you passionate about learning but find the ‘traditional’ school environment challenging – or even boring? Maybe you have considered university and engineering before? .. or maybe not. If you would like to experience what engineering has to offer, then Spark is for you!

If you are currently:

    1. Attending High School in grades 10-12 or are in a tertiary preparatory program (or an equivalent senior schooling program); and
  1. Currently living in Australia (including the Torres Strait Islands)

Keep a lookout below for the application process to open for this life changing experience to find your Spark!
