EPro8 School Week - EPro8 Challenge

Go to content
EPro8 School Week
The EPro8 School Week will allow more of your students to get an introduction to engineering.   The package is designed for FOUR classrooms.
If your school has more than four classrooms then we can extend the "week" by adding extra days.

Each classroom will have one day of practical activities using a classroom lot of EPro8 School Equipment, plus hours of other activities that can be completed before or after the construction day.

The EPro8 School Week includes:
  • Hireage of six extra sets of EPro8 School Equipment
  • 128 EPro8 Workbooks - one for each of your students
  • Includes reading, writing and practical maths elements
  • Access to online resources
  • A teacher's manual to guide you through the week
  • The top two teams from each classroom will compete in an EPro8 Internal Event
Classroom Lot of Equipment
We will hire and deliver an additional six sets of EPro8 School Equipment.  If your school already owns one set of EPro8 School Equipment, you will now have seven sets to use for the week.  This is enough equipment for 28 students each day.  Spread over four days this is 112 students.
Hours of Activities
The EPro8 School Week uses the same EPro8 Workbook as the EPro8 Classroom Week.  With sharing the equipment amoungst four classrooms you won't have enough time to do all the construction activities - but there are some really good activities in the workbook NOT using the equipment that can be done before and after the day of using the equipment.

The programme is structured to be easy for teachers.

EPro8 Workbook
Each student will receive a quality 44 page EPro8 Workbook.  The workbook includes:
  • practical activities using the equipment
  • activities covering reading, writing, maths and art from an engineering perspective
  • access to online resources and videos

Topics include:
  • engineering art and scale drawing
  • technical writing
  • measurements
  • scientific method and graphs
  • sport science
EPro8 Internal Event
The top two teams from each classroom (eight teams) will compete in an EPro8 Internal Event.  This is run in a similar style to the Event Series, complete with live scoring.  

Teams will compete to earn points in a two hour event.  
We will provide challenges, certificates, trophies and access the the EPro8 Live Scoring System.

You will run the event, including the judging, but training and support will be provided.

The top THREE teams from each EPro8 School Week qualify to represent your school in the EPro8 Challenge Event Series.
Online Resources
The EPro8 School Week comes with online resources that will make the learning experience easier and more enjoyable for teachers and students.

This includes tutorials from the EPro8 Engineers, interactive activities and eductational games.
The cost of the EPro8 School Week, including equipment hire, is  $1250.  
If you have more than four classrooms, each additional day is $290, and includes an additional 32 workbooks.
Prices stated include GST.
There is not a reduced price for schools with their own equipment, as if you own your own equipment then condensing the programme to one week doesn't make sense.

This programme is attractive to sponsors such as local engineering firms.  
Please contact us for a template letter to send to a local business for their support.
This price includes:
- Four classrooms each having one day use of the EPro8 School Equipment
- 128 quality full colour workbooks (one for each student) - for hours of extra activties.
- Accompanying online-activities
- EPro8 Internal Event including use of the EPro8 Live Scoring System

Freight of the equipment in both directions is included in this price.
This cost does not include the entry fee for any teams that qualify for the Event Series.
