Connecting with High School Students During Lockdown

In August and September, while we were all deep in lockdown in NSW, high school Engineering Studies students from Sydney Secondary College in Blackwattle Bay, Waverly College, South Sydney High School, Meriden School, and Norwest Christian College in Riverstone, were able to learn more about Materials Science and Engineering, virtually.

Scarlet Kong, our Community and Current Student Engagement Officer, took these students on a journey into the world of Materials Science and Engineering, talking about how important and relevant the research we do at UNSW is to society, the wide range of career paths you can take as a materials graduate and her own experiences as a student transition from high school into university and studying in our very own school.

Below are a few happy faces of students enjoying Scarlet’s talk.
