Central Queensland University were one of our first clients at BOP and over the years we have loved working with them to inspire and empower regional students, showing them that with the help of technology, their postcode is no barrier to innovating and creating.
We work with a number of teams inside the university, but one of our favourite projects with them is their ConocoPhillips Science Experience.
These experiences run in the CQU campuses across the state and are co-facilitated and developed by BOP and the CQU staff at each campus.
The Science Experiences see between 20-80 year 9 and 10 students coming to the CQU campus during the term for a three-day experience designed to help them develop 21st-century skills, whilst also learning about the different courses available to them to study on the campus.
For this project, we have the pleasure of developing a diverse range of programs with a custom focus for each campus. These ranging from innovation in Environmental Protection and Community Leadership in Gladstone, Agriculture in Rockhampton, Tourism in Cairns, Engineering and Nursing in Townsville, and more.
These programs give students a taste of a range of different topics, whilst also promoting the amazing opportunities for them at Central Queensland University.
