Fleet Exosphere Challenge
ExoSphere is a tool that uses Geode, a satellite-enabled seismometer, to search for important minerals (such as gold and copper) in remote locations. This is an opportunity to understand the connection between space and mineral exploration, beamforming technology on satellites, the Geodes, and how these together have built Exosphere.

Be a Structural Engineer! Structural engineers are a specialized type of civil engineer. They focus on designing strong buildings that can support their own weight and the weight of everything in them while also standing up to forces of wind, weather, temperature, and earthquakes. Work in teams to develop a free standing structure, 20cm tall min & holding a weight! Are you up for the challenge?
Babcock - Pipeline Challenge
How do engineers develop pipeline systems to transport water over very long distances? This is an opportunity for intrepid learners to test their engineering skills as they build their own pipeline to transport a golf ball or a ping pong ball across the purpose-built, Science Alive! pipeline arena. What ingenious method will you and your team use to get to the end?
SA Power Networks - Stobie Pole Art Challenge
In this challenge, students design an artwork to attach to a Stobie Pole that tells a story or shares a message about renewable energy. As a group, increase awareness about sustainability and/or renewable energy in a positive way.
