NOTE- BOOKINGS for Term 1 2017 ARE NOW OPEN. LIMITED SCHOOLS ONLY.
Cancer Council ACT in collaboration with The University of the Sunshine Coast is once again very excited to offer ACT secondary school students (year 9-12) and their teachers a speacial opportunity to undertake a UV Digital Imaging photograph to asses solar induced skin damage and evaluate current sun protective measures.
If you would like to host a Sun Camera Classroom Experience please complete and submit the form below to register your interest. Please also note that students wishing to have their photograph taken must have parent consent. A consent form will be provided by Cancer Council ACT in preperation of the visit.
Due to limited time schools will be limited to just one visit- and no more than 3 sessions during the visit.
Students who have their photo taken on the day will be given their image to take home with them, one for the fridge! Due to time constraints only a limted amount of students per session will be photographed. Please note that no identifying student information will be recorded, this is strictly an educational activity to highlight how UV expsoure has reacted with your skin over the years.
If you have any questions or require more information please contact Cancer Council ACT's SunSmart Services Coordinator.
To learn more about the UV (Sun) Camera and what the images show download the booklet from QUT Skin Cancer Awareness Program. Please share this booklet with students who will be participating in a Sun Camera Classroom Experience.
