The Primary Science and Engineering Challenge is a day-long competition, hosted at Dreamworld, designed to provide a real world science and engineering context for students in Years 5 and 6.
The competition day will see students from public and private schools competing against each other through a variety of exciting challenges focused on the physics of theme park rides.

Each school team will be divided into groups consisting of 3 – 4 students, and will work on 2 half-day activities. Students will work on activities throughout Dreamworld, enabling them to apply the physics of theme park rides all around them to the challenges set before them.
