Murdoch University’s Open Your Mind Day is just a month away and promises to be even bigger and better than before.

The August 22 event is a great opportunity to find out about courses and career options – between 10am and 4pm there will be lots of activities to explore, including opportunities to:

  • Visit the supercomputer facility to play games and observe cellular functions;
  • See how desalination works and make your own gold nano particles;
  • Check out the Media Centre and take part in some sound activities;
  • Indulge in a children’s book and find out about teaching;
  • Get plastic from poo?;
  • Spot the fake smile in true Lie to Me style;
  • Join the debate on trust in the Philosophy Café; and,
  • Get into the groove with some dancing custard.

The campus will be packed with activities that will give visitors an insight into university life as well as opportunities to speak with career counsellors, professors and researchers about study options and pathways available at Murdoch.

The free entertainment on campus includes a Zorb Ball, Bungee Run, Cup and Saucer ride, the Travelling Animal Farm, a Red Bull Chill Out Zone and lots more – including a free concert with a great band line-up:

There are also some fantastic prizes to be won, including Southbound 2011 tickets – thanks to Murdoch’s partnership with Sunset Events – and an Apple iPad.
