In the January school holidays, Jackson Liddle (Yr 12 – 2016) was selected to enrol as a student of the University of Wollongong and participate in the ‘In2Uni Summer Master Class’. Jackson undertook the course STEM001, ‘Sustainable Futures in Maths, Physics & Engineering’, part of the faculty of Engineering & Information Sciences. This course enabled him to explore the role that mathematics, physics and engineering play in creating an environmentally and socially sustainable future. Jackson learnt introductory concepts in University level mathematics and physics and was able to apply them through the engineering method to solve technical challenges faced by communities seeking sustainable living. He examined the physics of conservation of energy and saw how this fundamental concept is being used to generate electricity and manage water supply everywhere from small scale off grid communities to the world’s biggest cities. Jackson successfully graduated from this university course and has been offered an early admission interview in the Faculty of Engineering & Information Sciences for 2017 university study.
