Ahli created a steampunk-inspired sting ray which would look perfect on a wall, while Navana created a flower, which is beautiful and would complement any garden.

Ignite Excursion to UWAEngineering challenges, financial analyses, and medical mysteries were on the cards for a group of our students when they visited UWA, courtesy of the Ignite Mentoring Program. Throughout the day, our students explored the university and spoke to students about university life. They also had the chance to explore different educational pathways as they rotated through activities hosted by the School of Engineering, the School of Business and Commerce, and the School of Medicine.In the Engineering School the students had to create a turbine out of basic materials then test its efficiency using a fan, simulating natural wind. In the School of Business and Commerce the students learned about the refugee immigration process and devised a weekly budget for a small family receiving Centrelink benefits. There was also a diagnostic challenge for those interested in medical careers, with the students having to assess what illness was present in a “patient” given their “symptoms” and some additional provided information.At the end of the day, the students attended a Career Expo to find out more about future job options from people studying or working in the area.It was a wonderful day out and we would like to thank the Ignite Mentoring Program for a stimulating and enlightening excursion.
