We welcome all visitors at Ingenuity, current university students, high school students and their teachers, industry members and the general public. Admission is free.
Ingenuity is an exhibition featuring a range of interactive, STEM-focused activities. It provides an insight into the variety of career opportunities available across architecture and built environment, science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). In 2021, Ingenuity can be accessed both in person and virtually.
In person at the Adelaide Convention Centre
Anyone can attend Ingenuity, and teachers and high school students, current University of Adelaide students, industry and government representatives, and the general public are all encouraged to attend!
Stop by to see 300+ projects and chat with the students, visit the Women in STEM lounge or participate in STEM Academy activities! While you're there, don't forget to vote for your favourite project and go in the draw to win prizes yourself! More details to come.
To safely exhibit our student projects in line with COVID-19 guidelines this years’ event will be ticketed and divided into a morning and afternoon session.
For high school groups: Ingenuity is a unique opportunity for high school students to engage with university students, share in their experiences, and learn more about studying architecture, engineering, computer and mathematical sciences at the University of Adelaide. High school groups will also have the opportunity to attend a 20-minute presentation, featuring guest speakers and explaining how to get the most out of attending Ingenuity. High school teachers can sign up for priority updates in the lead up to the event.
Explore Ingenuity virtually
In 2021, all of our student projects will be showcased at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre on Tuesday 26 October. However, if you can't make it to the physical event, explore in your own time – all 300+ student projects will also be exhibited online in our interactive Ingenuity gallery!
Mechanical Engineering students Katherine Carlos, Nickita Chen, Fida Hussain, Wenzheng Liu and Sheryl Mourin have used their innovation and collaboration skills to design a robotic, remote-controlled hybrid system that flies up to 80 metres to clear high transmission maintenance lines – decreasing hazards to maintenance workers.
The team will be showcasing their hybrid system robot in the Transforming Technologies theme at Ingenuity, along with 300+ other innovative student projects.
Your feedback will help us plan future Ingenuity events and identify areas that need improvement.
