How Did I Get Here? The twists and turns of a STEM career

  • - (AEST)

Is a career in science, technology, engineering, or maths (STEM) something you're considering? Maybe you're looking for a career change, or you're working for the first time in a STEM-adjacent role and want to know a bit more about careers in your new field. Maybe you haven’t considered it as an option or don’t think you’re smart enough (which is a common myth!). Or maybe you help others consider their STEM career options, give career advice, and want to learn more about what programs and career tools are available. If any of these sound familiar, then this webinar is for you.

The National Youth Science Forum (NYSF) is delighted to present an online panel discussion, 'How did I get here? The twists and turns of a STEM career', featuring Australia’s Chief Scientist Dr Cathy Foley AO PSM. Dr Foley will be joined by David Ball, Regional Director Australia and New Zealand, Lockheed Martin Australia, and Dr Sam Moyle, high school science teacher and the 2019 recipient of the Prime Minister's Prize for Excellence in Science Teaching in Secondary Schools. The webinar will be hosted by 2016 NYSF alumnus Benjamin Millar, current Bachelor of Advanced Computing Honours student at the Australian National University.

Tune in to hear about our panel's diverse STEM career stories, how they got to where they are today, and how they overcame hurdles along the way. Our panellists will provide insights on how you can find out about STEM careers and share some of the great resources available. Many of the jobs that will be available in three to five years don’t even exist yet, and huge STEM workforce shortages are predicted in Australia and globally. Don’t miss this inside view on a life in STEM from leading industry and education experts.
