This student competition takes place during National Engineering Month every March. Teams of up to 5 students work together with their local OACETT chapter and volunteers to host one or more public outreach events in their local community.
Getting involved in public outreach is a great way to strengthen your communication and organization skills – something future employers will be keen to see on your resume. It’s a fantastic opportunity to ignite your passion for engineering in others and potentially improve the diversity of future engineering technology students!
If you’re new to outreach and public engagement don’t worry – we have activity ideas, funding and swag available to support you in delivering your activities.
Three cash prizes are available this year and will be presented at your College in a ceremony by a prominent OACETT member: $3000 for first place, $1500 for second and $750 for third. Winning teams also receive a year’s free student OACETT membership.
