Desert Knowledge Australia is excited to announce an event on 16 August designed for a younger age group and their parents. The event aims to increase awareness and understanding of solar panel technologies and satellite ground station technologies, with a particular focus on inspiring and encouraging students to pursue STEM fields.

During the event, keynote speakers, including subject matter experts from the DKA Solar Centre and Centre for Appropriate Technology, will deliver an engaging, informative, and interactive presentation. This one-hour session will allow 15-30 students and their parents to ask questions, participate in discussions, and explore the fascinating world of solar panel technologies.

Aligned with the objectives of National Science Week, the project seeks to inspire wider community participation in STEM and ignite a passion for the Alice Springs Future Grid Project, Satellite Technologies, DKA Solar Centre, and associated collaboration activities. The Solar Centre itself serves as a live display of research in action, providing a tangible and immersive experience for attendees.

Additionally, Desert Knowledge Australia has also planned another event, open to all community members, on 19 August at 11:00 am. This additional session will further promote community engagement and foster an inclusive environment for anyone interested in learning about solar panel technologies and their impact on our world.

Make sure to mark your calendars for both of these events, as they present invaluable opportunities to explore the exciting realm of solar panel technologies and Satellite ground Station technologies, while also inspiring the next generation of STEM enthusiasts
