Griffith’s STEM Roadshow bound for Mackay & Rockhampton 

Some of the best names in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) research will offer valuable insight into various fields of study when Griffith University’s STEM Roadshow arrives in Mackay and Rockhampton on May 28 and 29. 

Griffith experts with knowledge and experience in wide-ranging STEM industries – including engineering, environmental science, aviation, IT and urban planning – will be on hand to answer prospective students’ questions about the diverse programs offered at the Brisbane, Gold Coast and Logan campuses. 

Participants will also receive valuable one-on-one advice from each Griffith University expert on how best to place themselves in tomorrow’s job market as well as find out more about the diversity and uniqueness of Griffith’s STEM programs. 

“The STEM Roadshow is unique in that it travels around with representatives from the major STEM disciplines and gives everyone who comes along – students, teachers parents and those interested in further study – the chance to ask questions of the lecturers who teach in those disciplines,” Damian Harris said, who is managing the tours across Queensland. 

“We think the skill set that comes from studying STEM sets students up for the fast-changing work environment they will be entering.  

“To assist people on that journey is very fulfilling.” 

Griffith experts joining the tour include: 

  • Prof Steven O’Keefe, Electrical Engineering 
  • Dr Leah Burns, Environmental Anthropology 
  • A/Prof Helen Stratton, Environmental Microbiology
