The Year 5 and 6 students from Childers State School and Cordalba State School visited Bundaberg Campus as part of the CQUni Connect program, in a bid to experience a day of university life.

Over 100 primary school students from Childers and Cordalba converged on CQUniversity's Bundaberg campus this week.

The Year 5 and 6 students from Childers State School and Cordalba State School visited the university as part of the CQUni Connect program, in a bid to experience a day of university life.

The program included interaction and diversity, enabling the students to participate in a range of activities including GPS Tracking, Aviation, Engineering and Identity Web, as a starting point to one day considering a career through higher education.

“The students had opportunities to fly their classmates out of Bundy in an Aviation flight simulator, see themselves dressed in real work clothes as a 3D miniature hologram and consider their personality strengths and how they align to future career choices,” CQUni Connect Officer, Fiona O’Connor said.

Childers State School Guidance Officer Greg Souvan said he believed that by starting young, students would be inspired to look at university as a friendly, local place to further their career opportunities.
