How does a Techtrails school incursion run?
The Techtrails school incursion is a day full of excitement and fun around STEM. Targeted at secondary students, the event brings trailblazing industry experts into schools. While meeting some of Western Australia’s most inspirational professionals and entrepreneurs, students develop a deeper understanding of how STEM skills taught in class today can be applied in real-world contexts.
After an opening presentation to all students and teachers, students start rotating through their small-group sessions. In each session, the students meet a STEM industry professional to hear their personal stories of how they pursued their passions and came to use their STEM skills to create exciting and meaningful career pathways. Students have the opportunity to interact with five to eight different STEM professionals, listen to them talk about their careers and ask questions.
Rotating through a variety of speakers, and taking part in a Virtual Reality activity, each session challenges them to explore new concepts and ideas in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
