The National Indigenous Summer School will attract around 40 high school students from as far afield as Western Australia, far north Queensland and the Torres Strait.
For the first time, this year’s program will cover the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences, as well as Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine topics.
The students will split into groups to explore things like how epidemiologists find the cause of a disease outbreak, the link between genetics and Harry Potter, and what it takes to build a global business.
They will also participate in a mock law trial, spend time stargazing at Mt Stromlo, and visit the National Museum, National Arboretum and Questacon.
Media are invited to attend the summer school.
Students and organising committee members will be available for interview.
WHAT: 2018 National Indigenous Summer School
