HDA supports The Science and Engineering Challenge (Geelong) 2023

September 4, 2023

Hanwha Defence Australia is proud to have been a Gold Sponsor for The Science and Engineering Challenge (Geelong) for 2023.

The two-day long day event was held at the ManuFutures hub at Deakin University and attended by more than 400 Year 10 students from 14 schools across the region.

ManuFutures is a unique, advanced manufacturing innovation hub that has helped create over $1 billion in company value, hosted over 500 student placements and created over 120 direct new jobs since it’s establishment in 2018.

The Challenge aims to ignite student interests in science, engineering, technology and mathematics (STEM), by encouraging participation in fun and practical activities.

The ultimate goal is expanding options for young people and alleviating skills shortages in critical areas of STEM centred roles.

The Challenge was originally developed by University of Newcastle and has received support from Rotarians of Geelong, who managed the event.
