Abstract

St Matthews Catholic School held a Science, Maths and Engineering Careers Expo which was pitched at our Year 8, 9 and 10 students, and aimed to introduce our students to the wide range of career options that rely on Science and Maths. It was also pitched at this level as by Year 10 students are beginning to think about their Stage 6 course selection. The careers expo drew upon the expertise of the St Matthew's school community and the wider Mudgee community. Around 35 different professionals from the local Mudgee community attended; the majority of these professionals are parents in our school community, but we were also fortunate enough to have a couple of St Matt's alumni, Ben Fitzsimmons, an engineer for HumeCoal, and Jason Streat, a sports analyst for the St George Dragons.
