Inventors and Mentors Program Features Amy Gibson
This week as part of our Inventors and Mentors Program we were lucky enough to have Amy Gibson to come and talk to our senior students this week.
Amy has had a lifelong passion for problem-solving and pulling things apart and putting them back together and was able to channel these interests into a career as Mechanical Engineer. She recently completed her degree at Singapore University of Technology and Design and now works for Subnero, a Singapore company that specialises in underwater engineering.
Amy shared her insights into her career path, all the way from which subjects inspired her at school to how relevant STEM education is in any field. An important message that Amy was keen to impart to the students was the importance of failing, She encouraged students to Fail Hard and Fail Often and that FAILURE is a vital step on the way to success!
In coming weeks we will have some more exciting visitors to the school as part of the Inventors and Mentors Program including Tony Dee, an Australian Jazz Musician who will be talking to Year 5, 6 & 7 students on Monday, 19 March.
