Engineering Games

A fun, engrossing event for students interested in STEM subjects.

The Engineering Games are a fantastic event for pre-tertiary students of all levels. Part of Australian Engineering Week, the Engineering Games allow hundreds of students to harness and explore the skills of an engineer through a fun competition.

The Engineering Games are held in Canberra and are perfect for students who love Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects and activities. Inspire your students by organising an amazing experience this year.

For future engineers of all ages

The Engineering Games has four categories that cover children from early primary school all the way up to those about to enter university. The categories are:

  • Junior Primary
  • Senior Primary
  • Secondary
  • Senior Secondary/College

Engineering challenges

Students will utilise processes of engineering to compete in challenges that will inspire and inform their interests. Here are a few examples of the activities:

  • Straw tower construction using drinking straws as the structural element
  • Bridge building using spaghetti
  • Model car design and construction
  • Robot construction and racing
  • Electric light control
  • And more!
