Call for Volunteers
Founded by young engineers Felicity Briody of AECOM and Jillian Kenny from Queensland University of Technology, the Power of Engineering is a fully funded, one day program for young female students in years nine and ten.
Featuring interactive workshops, guest speakers and site visits, the program gives students the opportunity to experience first-hand what’s possible in a career in engineering.
This industry and university supported program aims to inspire over 1,000 young females this year to consider a diverse and creative career in engineering. So what are you waiting for?
