WIA STEM Symposium details announced

Date : 10 / 10 / 2016
Author : Jim Linton - VK3PC

The Wireless Institute of Australia has called for expressions of interest in its STEM Symposium to be held in Canberra. It will be at the Canberra Region Amateur Radio Club, "Mt Mugga" Scout Hall 17 Astrolabe Street, Red Hill, 9am to 3pm on November 19, 2016, with morning and afternoon tea, and a light lunch provided, but participants need to fund their own transport and accommodation.

The aim is to develop a role for WIA members and the radio amateur community to use their technological expertise toward Federal and or State Government STEM Programs. The initiative is to enable young Australians to learn technology-based skills and knowledge, rather than being a recruitment exercise, although some may also want to later be radio amateurs.

The invitation only symposium will look at ideas on many areas where radio amateurs can provide expertise in STEM-related projects, test the suggestions as to their viability, identify project groups and leaders who will develop project briefs, and submit these to relevant government agencies. There has already been great interest in the Symposium, among those wanting to attend, or send written papers on subjects and experiences.
