Yesterday, seven students from the Specialist Maths Science program visited La Trobe University as part of the Outreach Program.

The students worked in the Applied Science Building, creating their own Laser Tags.

The workshop began with a presentation on how the laser works and instructions for building their own, before students used soldering irons to connect the circuit parts.

The session wrapped up with a tour of the new Bendigo Tech School facility.

BSSC teacher, Mathew Gill, said it was a great opportunity for students to extend their knowledge with hands-on activities and get a feel for uni life at the same time.
