Charles’ idea makes the cut

Penrith Press - - CAREERS - Janita Singh

THERE is no doubt that tech­nol­ogy is chang­ing the em­ploy­ment land­scape.

As a re­sult, the Pow­er­house Mu­seum launched a pro­gram called STEAM (Science, Tech­nol­ogy, En­gi­neer­ing, Art and Math­e­mat­ics) last year which looks at how stu­dents can learn more about these fields and pur­sue ex­cit­ing ca­reers.

STEAM of­fers learn­ing pro­grams that are aligned with school cur­ricu­lums and fo­cus on cre­ativ­ity and inno- va­tion with hands-on learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ences. It also fea­tures in­ter­ac­tive screen­based lessons, led by MAAS cu­ra­tors, ed­u­ca­tors and guest ex­perts.

Reg­u­lar ex­hi­bi­tions form part of the pro­gram.

Cur­rently on dis­play is an ex­hi­bi­tion ti­tled Shape 2016 fea­tur­ing works from three de­sign ar­eas – de­sign and tech­nol­ogy, tex­tiles and de­sign and in­dus­trial tech­nol­ogy by 36 HSC grad­u­ates from last year.

Shape 2016 is on un­til May 7,
