“When I was in high school, I didn’t really know what engineering was. I did not know the doors it could open for you. Working as an engineer, I have built roads in London, runways in Sydney and worked on trains that drive by themselves in the Western Australian outback. The world is your oyster once you get into engineering and students really need to know what they can do and the opportunities it presents them.”
Simon Ladewig, Project Manager, Calibre

Calibre has partnered with award-winning education provider STEM Punks to create the Calibre Energy in Education school initiative, which aims to educate and inspire young minds about the future of renewable energy and the exciting role they can play by pursuing STEM-related careers.

The workshop helps students to examine geothermal technology and solar power with a focus on:

  • Renewable Energy
  • Innovation and Design Thinking process
  • STEM careers with industry link
  • Showcasing of students’ work
Designing a sustainable school at the Calibre Energy in Education workshop at Siena College - Wednesday 18 May 2021

Participants design a sustainable school using 3D technology (Tinkercad and CoSpaces) as part of the full day workshop, in which they will also learn about the day in the life of a Calibre engineer, learn STEM skills and design thinking before presenting and evaluating their sustainable school designs. The content has been designed to ensure the workshop links industry skills with the Curriculum.

The Calibre Energy in Education initiative is delivered in-person and online and is suitable for high school students in year levels 7-9.
