Energy in Education
Calibre recently hosted a ground-breaking new STEM school workshop at Assisi Catholic College today, to engage and inspire the teenage STEM professionals of the future.
Partnering with award-winning education provider STEM Punks, the initiative – Calibre Energy in Education – aims to educate and inspire young minds about the future of renewable energy and the exciting role they can each play by pursuing a STEM-related career.
The workshop was designed help students examine geothermal technology and solar power with a focus on:
• Renewable Energy
• Innovation and Design Thinking process
• STEM careers with industry links
• Showcasing of students’ work
• Raising awareness about the market-leading products and services that Calibre offers.
Students were required to design a sustainable school using 3D technology as part of the full day workshop, in which they will also learn about the day in the life of a Calibre engineer, discover STEM skills and thinking, before presenting and evaluating their sustainable school designs.
Calibre’s Executive General Manger Professional Services Julie Stanley said the initiative was a dual investment in the future of a sustainable environment and a renewables focussed STEM workforce.
“As Calibre makes the transition towards more renewable and sustainable energy solutions, we see this as a great investment in the future, engaging young people around climate and ecological challenges.”
Calibre will sponsor 30 students across year’s 7 to 10 who are enrolled in school-based STEM clubs to take part in the workshop.
