The Tech Schools run a number of different events each year, such as industry breakfasts, professional development sessions, teacher networking events, exhibitions and showcases. As an event partner, you’ll have an opportunity to connect directly with the future workforce, extend your networks and increase your business awareness within the community.
Mini Maker Faire
In partnership with various community and industry partners
Our Mini Maker Faire is an annual event led by our Student Ambassadors with support from Tech School staff for hundreds of primary students to engage in hands-on activities, make things and learn new skills. The event is supported by different community and industry partners each year and the style of engagement is varied. Some past examples are Telstra providing one of their Cruzr robots for the 2019 event and Yarra Plenty Regional Library running an electronic circuits activity using play dough at the 2018 event.
Leadership Development Conference
In partnership with Carlton Football Club
In 2017, we partnered with Carlton Football Club to develop a Leadership Conference for our Student Ambassador cohort. This event gave students a practical view into the STEM aspects of professional sport as well as an opportunity to develop their interpersonal and leadership skills through mentorship and presentations led by this event partner.
