This program will be available in 2021

For year 12 physics and chemistry students interested in tertiary study at the University of South Australia.

The year 12 Science Booster is a two day program, held 6-7 July 2020, designed to enhance the learning of year 12 physics and chemistry students.

The Science Booster aims to:

  • motivate and support students 
  • explore study pathways
  • reinforce year 12 physics and chemistry studies through experiential learning.

The specially-tailored program for students considering UniSA as an option for university includes laboratory sessions based on summative assessments, learning and study methods, exam preparation, and career insight sessions. All activities are tailored to review and support curriculum in Stage 2 SACE subjects.

Students can choose physics and/or chemistry sessions and have the opportunity to work closely with academic staff who are experts in the fields of physics and chemistry. They will also have access to specialist equipment and research facilities.

The full timetable for the program will be made available closer to the date.
