Gain valuable and relevant skills.
A year 10 student who has placed in the top 10 of the global competition RoboCup, but doesn’t quite know what he wants to do after school here in Brisbane. He likes the sounds of engineering and robotics, but not sure what exactly it would entail. These are the same questions we’ll ask you to find work you’ll love.
I’m not sure, but I think engineering or robotics.
Not exactly, but I know in both industries soft skills (like teamwork) would be required.
No – school hasn’t directly taught us soft skills. They’ve done teamwork and those kind of exercises but no focus on soft skills.
I’d definitely want to do work experience in engineering and robotics – otherwise you’re going into an industry not knowing what you’re doing. It would allow me to be more employable.
