Upper Yarra Tech Enthusiasts Level Up
Students from Upper Yarra SC made the trek to La Trobe University's Bundoora campus on 8 December to participate in LEAP into...Engineering's Software Simulation activity. The students learned about various fields of engineering before getting hands-on with the kinds of software that powers their favorite technology.
They then got a taste of programming in the Python language by modifying an existing program to simulate a real physics problem. Friendly competition ran high as the students vied for who could produce the best simulation.
Afterwards, La Trobe volunteers Matthew Felicetti and Joshua Millward took the students on a tour of the university facilities.
LEAP into… Engineering activities aim to encourage students to consider a career in Engineering. View all Engineering Activities available to your school.
