Questacon – in conjunction with the Office of the Governor‑General – is excited to present the 2022 Governor‑General’s Design Challenge. This live one hour virtual workshop is set to be a valuable experience for upper primary students. They will use design thinking in a hands-on and highly interactive way for deeper learning about science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

Join Questacon and Their Excellencies, the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Retd), Governor‑General of the Commonwealth of Australia, and Mrs Hurley, as they beam into your classroom for an exciting journey of tinkering, experimenting and exploring how light interacts with glass.

A link to the Zoom room will be provided to all registered closer to the event, which will be held on Friday 19 August.
