Giving up school holidays to design a bright future

This week in Brisbane, a select group of Indigenous Australian students will discover if an engineering or science career is for them.

 

The Indigenous Australian Science and Infrastructure Development Winter School is a four-day program aimed at showcasing science, technology and engineering education pathways and careers.

Regional Director Mr Gerard Ryan explained this is the third annual Winter School held at QUT and jointly hosted by the university’s Oodergoo Unit and WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff.  

‘This year we are running two hands-on activities – combining technology and people skills, which are both important in our industry.

‘The students will create a short project visualisation and try their hands at stakeholder engagement using a futuristic development project.

‘These practical exercises help explain our industry, the careers available to them and how to get started.

‘We must keep increasing opportunities for young Indigenous Australians to explore bright futures,’ said Mr Ryan.

Join us to see what’s on the program.

Where: WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff, Level 3, 69 Ann St, Brisbane

When: 10am to 1pm on Wednesday 1 July 2015
