    Thank you to our volunteers who worked with Canberra students in Engineering Week!

    What a fantastic week we had in Engineering Week 20-24 February. HUGE thank you to all of the local engineering organisations that volunteered their time and resources to chat to Canberra students about engineering and run some very cool activities. The pilot was a great success and we are looking forward to running more programs like it in the future. Huge shoutout to Deputy President Skye Blair in particular for her commitment and dedication in getting this program off the ground.

    If you want to know more about our Engineering Week program and the feedback we received, check out our Engineering Week wrap up below:
