Workshop 2 - Engineering the Unexpected

A foundation in science and maths and an engineering mindset can take you places you never expected. From building Australia’s largest roads to starting and running four successful businesses’ to learning how to fly a military fighter jet. It is an engineering mindset that has powered Felicity to have an exciting and inspiring career.

 

In this engaging presentation, Felicity Furey will explore:

  • The creativity and innovation of a STEM mindset

  • What does it really take to be ‘good’ at maths and science – hint: you don’t need to be the top of the class

  • Myth busting STEM careers: where maths, science and engineering can really take you

  • ‘When will I ever learn this?!’ – when you will actually use that maths

 

Felicity will share her journey from a self-confessed average student and maths ‘hater’ to a maths lover and how she has had a successful career with a STEM mindset.

Workshop 1 - Oscilloscopes in the classroom

Through an online oscilloscope simulator, participants will get a feel for working with an oscilloscope. This webinar will be useful for school teachers and educators intending to work with electronic circuits as part of lab work in STEM courses.

First will be an overview of the key controls available on an oscilloscope followed by a demonstration of simple measurements on commonly used signals in the lab. We will also explain common signal measurements using different types of electronic signals - sine, square waves and pulses.
