Digital Careers - Canberra Events

Digital Careers is a National four-year industry collaboration program designed to inspire secondary school children to take-up careers in ICT. 

Local Digital Career events are being scheduled. Last Sunday, ACS volunteers flew AR-Drones (to demonstrate some really neat drone, WiFi, and smartphone integration) with the Digital Careers team at the NAIDOC on the Peninsula Community Day.  

Upcoming events are Canberra Careers Expo (30-31 July) and Young ICT Explorers (YICTE, 13 September).

ACS members interested in assisting in these events are welcome to register interest with the ACS Canberra team. 

I hope to see you at these and other ACS Canberra professional networking functions listed below.

 

Kind regards,

 

Jeff Mitchell
