FU­TURE FORETOLD

Fremantle Gazette - - AROUND THE SUBURBS -

JOHN Curtin Col­lege of the Arts stu­dents tried their hands at pre­dict­ing the fu­ture dur­ing a re­cent Scitech event.

The Pic­ture Perth project in­vited stu­dents from five high schools to cre­ate a video that would not only tell the story about how Perth was chang­ing but to also pre­dict what it might be like in the fu­ture through the use of Cen­sus re­sults.

Scitech sci­ence of­fi­cer Leon Smith said the John Curtin video fo­cused on re­new­able en­ergy, gen­der pay gaps and equal­ity in par­lia­ment.

“All the teams ex­plored very dif­fer­ent as­pects of the Cen­sus data and it pro­vided a well-rounded and in­ter­est­ing look into our his­tory and the po­ten­tial fu­ture of Perth,” he said.

“The stu­dents worked very hard and the project proved to be a valu­able learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for all.”
