STEM Together Camp

Some of our Future Shapers chose to come to Townsville for a STEM Camp where they connected with STEM experts, research, and met other Future Shapers.

STEM Together Program Manager, Amy Boulding is interviewed while short clips of students listening to experts from a farm, a wind tunnel and the great barrier reef park authority play in quick succession. Amy says "Future Shapers is the recognition program of STEM Together, where we select around 30 people each year to then receive tailored opportunities to boost them on the next steps in STEM.

Today I'm at the Future Shapers camp, where we have our secondary school Future Shapers participating in a range of activities, including meeting CSIRO scientists, getting hands-on with activities that you will do in the career of a scientist, building those 21st century skills, building science communication skills, and getting to connect with like-minded peers from across the country.

Dr Ed Chalmers is interviewed. He says "Today was fantastic. I think only when you see science in action in the field, you realise the depth and breadth of what STEM can do. It's not all about being in a lab. It's about making it work. So to bring them out here and get them involved and interested because the science and the technology that goes into AG today is mind-blowing."
