Four representatives from the Defence Industries attended a special tour of Comet Bay College last week, to learn more about our expanding STEM program, projects and technologies.
LCDR Wes North from the Royal Australian Navy, Cris Italiano and Luke Simmons from Bae Systems and Peter Mader from Saab Group met with staff and students and explored our Design and Technologies department and new, purpose-built STEM workshop.
Dean of Technologies Morgan Hill showcased the range of machinery our students learn to navigate, including laser cutters, CNC cutters and 3D printers, and discussed some of the projects they have undertaken, such as building and racing our eV vehicles and designing and making prosthetic hands.
Comet Bay College is a leading STEM school and Defence School Mentor and Career Development Events Coordinator Claire Hunt said it was important for industries to recognise the potential of our graduates.
“This tour was designed to showcase the expanse of our programs and facilities which equip our students with a range of skills that make them industry-ready upon graduation,” she said.
