MIE Events Science and Engineering Challenge

July 12, 2022 - July 14, 2022

Due to popular demand places for the MIE Events Science and Engineering Challenge are now full! If you like information about our other STEM events please get in touch MIEEvents@usc.edu.au

Join us for the biggest MIE Event of the year! The Science and Engineering Challenge is a day-long competition designed to provide Year 10 (or Year 9) students with a positive experience of science and engineering. A maximum of 8 schools per day compete against each other at one central venue.

Each school bring a team of between 16 and 32 students. Each school “team” is divided into 8 groups of 2 to 4 students. There are 8 activities to participate in. Each group will then do either one full- day activity, or two half-day activities (i.e. one activity in the morning session, and a different one in the afternoon session). Students are assigned a colour to identify which activity(s) they will do during the morning and afternoon sessions.

Students are awarded points for each activity and the school with the most cumulative points at the end of the day is declared the winner! Here is the list of activities being offered in 2022.


The SEC, in collaboration with the University of Newcastle, encourages students to consider a career in science or engineering while engaging in exciting competition.

More information about the challenge, competition and activities can also be found on the University of Newcastle website:


We wish all the schools competing the best luck!
