Calling all young women for three days of fun!

Will you be in Years 9 - 12 in 2024? Then come and experience what it’s like to be an engineer with exciting, hands on activities in real university labs at UNSW Canberra.

Experience three days of awesome activities with the opportunity to meet other like-minded young women, inspirational female guest speakers, university students and engineering staff.

Discover aerospace, aeronautical, civil, electrical, mechanical and software engineering with spectacular activities like:

  • building a gas turbine engine and exploring flight
  • pulling apart a lawnmower engine and reassembling
  • soldering and programming electrical circuits
  • programming a robot to solve missions
  • designing, building and testing a dam
  • building your own YoWIE keepsake in our mechanical engineering workshop
  • analysing a signal to return an astronaut to her rocket.

YoWIE is all about you! Our amazing workshops are designed to give you a flavour of university level engineering whilst having fun. Who knew studying maths and science in school could be this fun?
