Description

About LabRats

LabRats is a community engagement initiative for Years 10 and 11 secondary school students conducted at ECU's Joondalup Campus. This annual event provides an opportunity for students to visit the campus and participate in several hands-on science workshops.

Important Information

The event runs 18th, 19th, 20th September, with schools choosing just one day to attend. Each day consists of workshops run across a four-hour session that includes lunch for all students, teachers, ECU staff and students assisting the program. ECU will coordinate the bus for your students. ECU laboratories can accommodate 22 students, and each school may book up to 44 students (two tickets). If your school is interested in registering more than 44 students, please email us prior to registering.

How it works

If your school is considering a visit to us for the first time, then you may want a greater understanding about this program. These workshops are arranged in no particular cluster of subjects, which means that participating schools sign up for their preferred day and get allocated a cluster of workshops. We deliberately intend to provide a wide range of science related workshops, opening students' minds to the variety of science-based activities.
