‘The Smarter Planet Comes to You’ initiative aims to encourage young people to study science, technology, engineering and mathematics-based subjects and, as importantly, to ensure that students take advantage of the opportunities available (at home and abroad) to develop the ‘smarter skills’ that they will require to succeed in a wide range of careers.
The day event will include up to 40 different activities including: Smarter Planet ‘demonstrations’; ‘meet the expert’ sessions; and a fun ‘gaming’ zone for all to enjoy between lectures and seminars.
