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 10-12 although we welcome interested students from all year levels as well as teachers and parents!

Introducing our guest speakers:

Rob Fuller


Rob Fuller is a degreed engineer with a 20+ year career in engineering, IT, project management, and technical sales. He has worked for a variety of large and small organisations in the United States and New Zealand including the US Air Force, NASA, and Ford Motor Company. Rob moved with his family from America to New Zealand four years ago and has happily made New Zealand his new permanent home.

With a goal of passing on his professional experience and passion for learning to the next generation of engineers, scientists, and technology professionals, Rob is making a transition to become a high school science and technology teacher. He is completing his teacher education this year and will begin his new career as a secondary teacher in January, but is already enjoying teaching in classrooms throughout Christchurch, motivating and educating his students.


Evie Wallace

Evie Wallace is soon to complete her final year of her degree at the University of Canterbury, with a major in Chemical and Process Engineering and a minor in Bioprocess Engineering. Evie studied the three sciences and maths at high school, and continued on to study engineering due to the diverse career opportunities available.

Nearing the end of her degree, Evie believes studying engineering is more than just “problem solving”. In her opinion, a huge part of it is building relationships, sharing technical knowledge and getting involved with things you are passionate about.

During her time at University Evie has been involved with engineering tutoring, the Women in Engineering Society and disability peer notetaking. She’s also had a wide range of work experience - from operating a steel welding robot in a factory, to working in a consulting firm. She will soon be travelling to India to work with students on a sustainability project as part of the India New Zealand Sustainability Challenge. She has realised that there are so many opportunities for the taking, but they only become reality if you actively seek them and put yourself in situations that you haven’t been before!
