Event description

Description

The tech innovation hub of Silicon Valley, the global construction boom and the digital revolution are pushing demand for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) skills like never before.

Computer scientists, data analysts, app developers, coders, mechanical and civil engineers - these are the jobs of the future, not to mention doing your own thing as a STEM entrepreneur!

But how do you turn your passion for STEM classes at school into a career you'll love?

Come to 'Your Future in STEM - Uni and Career Pathways' where we will help you find the answers you're looking for while covering these four key topics:

  • The future of STEM
  • The most sought after skills in STEM
  • What you can be doing right now to further your passion and skill-set for STEM
  • The universities from around the world that can help you unleash your potential!

This event is tailored for students in Year 9-11 although we welcome interested students from all year levels as well as teachers and parents!

Our first expert speaker is tech entrepreneur, Scott Millar!

Seventeen-year-old Scott Millar is the CEO and founder of BOP Industries, a Brisbane based holographic projections startup working in a range of areas from events to marketing, theatre, retail and education.

Starting his company as part of a grade 9 business venture, Scott has grown BOP from selling key rings at local markets to now running events and workshops across Australia.

Still in grade 12, Scott has balanced running a business and school work since he was young and is living proof it can be done. Scott is a big advocate for young entrepreneurs and also a big believer in putting the A in STEM to make it STEAM. With some Arts and creativity, STEM skills can be fun, engaging and simple for people of all walks of life.

Scott looks forward to sharing his story to show that young people can do anything and age really is just a number.
