The Galuwa Scholarship Program had its inaugural Careers Aspiration Day on 10 August at the Wollotuka Institute at the University of Newcastle.
It was a great day where Galuwa students were able to experience what university life would be like. Students were amazed at the size of the library and that you could eat and talk in most areas, and that the library had over 1.3 million books, journals etc. that students could use and borrow.
Galuwa students also spent time in the Faculty of Health & Medicine, where they spent time in the Pharmacy making cream.
Galuwa students also went to the Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment, where they spent time programming a robot to DAB. It was a relatively easy thing to do, but there was difficulty involved; rotating the motor engine joints to a right angle and getting the robot to balance was particularly challenging.
