The Science and Engineering Challenge is a nationwide Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) outreach program, run in partnership with the University of Newcastle.

Through the Challenge, students experience aspects of Science and Engineering which they would not usually see in their school environment.

The Challenge runs a range of programs but focuses on inspiring students in year 10 to consider a future career in science and engineering by choosing to study the enabling sciences and mathematics in years 11 and 12.
