ASSETS is for Year 10 students who are interested in science, technology, engineering or mathematics and who identify with their Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander culture and heritage.
ASSETS students will benefit from attending a nine-day summer school and participating in an ongoing leadership and support program designed to nurture and encourage these students through Years 11 and 12. The summer school program combines interactive science inquiry activities with engaging cultural experiences. There is no cost to attend. Airfares, meals and accommodation are provided.
