Thinker's Webinar:
Engineering the future of the Deep Blue
Wednesday 5 August, 6 to 6:45pm AWST

This webinar will showcase a group of awe-inspiring science stars, whose seemingly ordinary beginnings have taken them to places far from the norm. Each has started or landed in engineering-based adventures, in entirely different ways from each other.

Hosts Andrew Outhwaite and Elizabeth Knight can’t wait to share the virtual stage and the journeys of:

From venturing to the deepest depths in the ocean, counting giant colourful cuttlefish in reefs along the South Australian coastline, to making waves in the fight for gender equality in STEM, our stars have some great stories to tell of their experiences enabled by the deep blue.

Each has fused their passion for science, engineering and inventing with a love for the ocean and the planet we all call home. The result? Careers that are dynamic, diverse and authentically their own, driven by a fierce determination to learn, explore and discover.

You are not just an engineer, but an engineer of something. So, what change will your studies enable in the world? What opportunities might it create for your future?
