Innovative courses and exciting educational opportunities on offer at Flinders University’s new city campus were the focus of the inaugural Northern Adelaide Roadshow, held on Tuesday 20 June.
Hosted by Flinders University’s Marketing and Student Recruitment (MSR), the workshop invited more than 120 Year 11 and Year 12 students from across the Northern Adelaide State Secondary Schools’ Alliance to participate in a range of study workshops led by Flinders academics.
The second Limestone Coast Roadshow – building on the success of the inaugural event in 2022 – was delivered on Wednesday 5 July to more then 120 students in Years 10, 11 and 12 from Naracoorte High School, Millicent High School, Penola High School and Grant High School. Designed to promote courses aligned to meet industry demand and provide the best future opportunities for young people in the region, the workshop informed participants about diverse opportunities being offered at Flinders University.
The workshops showed students prototype assistive game controllers, how to measure heart rates and activity levels, respond to emerging legal challenges, unpack the challenges of education and social work, and use electrophoresis to determine who committed a crime.
MSR would like to recognise and thank host sites Northern Sound System and Northern Adelaide Senior College (Northern Adelaide) and Naracoorte High School (Limestone Coast), along with staff from all six Colleges at Flinders University who offered support, engagement, and commitment to promote Flinders courses to prospective students.
With two more Roadshows still to come, MSR looks forward to working with academic staff on breaking down barriers, raising aspirations and putting Flinders first in the future education plans of high school students across South Australia.
The Western Adelaide Roadshow will be held on Tuesday 1 August at Underdale High School, with the Whyalla Roadshow taking place at Samaritan College on Tuesday 19 September.
