Real Day Out at IPAS

Following the success of our Children’s University tour in August, on 21st September IPAS proudly hosted a stop for #RealDayOut.  High school students from the Australian Science and Mathematics School (ASMS) were welcomed and introduced to IPAS by Drs Ben Sparkes and Chris Perrella. The students were then guided through our state-of-the-art fabrication facilities by Dr Erik Schartner and had interactive discussions with our technical experts Mr Evan Johnson and Mr Lijesh Thomas. They were also treated to a hands-on experience with a biomedical imaging device facilitated by Dr Jiawen Li, and enjoyed spectacular light transmission applications in the Optics lab.

A Real Day Out (RDO) is an immersive experience for students (years 10-11) and teachers or community members to learn about future careers and job roles. Students can learn about the jobs of the future, and meet potential employers, entrepreneurs and exporters.

We hope you enjoyed your #RealDayOut experience at IPAS and we wish you all the best in your future scientific endeavours!
