SIDE’s Career Department is thrilled that we could take the highly successful Mini Industry Roadshow (MiR) through the Midwest region, bringing hands-on learning experiences to students across the area.
The MiR visited Carnamah District High School and Jurien Bay District High School, where students participated in highly practical workshops exploring industry skills and career options. The roadshow program, designed by SIDE and funded by The Department of Training and Workforce Development, aims to inspire, educate, and engage students in diverse fields, fostering their passion for learning and their understanding of potential career paths.
At Carnamah District High School and Jurien Bay District High School, students explored cutting-edge technologies through drone piloting workshops hosted by Stemsmart. These sessions allowed students to master the art of remote automation and introduced them to emerging careers using robotic alternatives in the workforce. Yalagan Group brought their expertise in electrical trades to the table, offering students a hands-on experience with wiring and circuitry. This workshop provided valuable technical skills and highlighted the crucial role of trades for regional communities. Ricochet Circus rounded off the workshops with a focus on business management and entrepreneurship. Students were encouraged to think creatively, develop their business acumen, and consider the endless opportunities in entrepreneurship using their passion as a career basis.
The Mini Industry Roadshow was an outstanding success, leaving students inspired, informed, and excited about their future career paths. Such initiatives play a pivotal role in shaping students into well-rounded individuals ready to take on the challenges of tomorrow's workforce.
