It was great to be involved in the Big Day In event in my home city, Melbourne on Wednesday June 19 with about 400 secondary students from a wide range of schools.
The Big Day In events are all about encouraging secondary students to consider a career in IT. This event involved the following presenters …
- Lieutenant Scott Mansell from Defence Force Recruiting
- Monisha Viswanathan & Stephanie Duggan – Agilent Technologies
- Dennis Prior, Department of Human Services
- Matthew Rockell, STEM & Scholarships Manager, Group Technology, Westpac
- Greg Booker, RACQ
- Calvin Davidson, Microsoft and
With so many great presentations from such a variety of people and organisations, the students had a wealth of content to decipher.
It is always such a pleasure and a privileged to share my passions around developing 21st century skills such as collaboration, critical thinking, problem solving and creativity.
Next (& final Big Day In event for 2019) is in Adelaide.
