School of Chemistry
The Year 12 Depth Study ‘Biosignatures: Characterising Exoplanets with Spectroscopy’ aims to engage students in a unique application of spectroscopy – the ability to detect life on exoplanets. This is an unusual yet compelling application of spectroscopy which will motivate a now crucial component of the new HSC Syllabus.
The depth study is a way to encourage passion in your students, skill development and provide authentic information about university life and scientific career paths. On-campus excursion dates are available from November - December 2020.
Visit the UNSW School of Chemistry to find out about their outreach activities.
School of Medical Science
On the 18th & 19th March 2020, UNSW School of Medical Science will be hosting 'Your Brilliant Brain' - a series of workshops providing a unique experience through hands-on investigations of the human brain.
