Industry To Classroom is a volunteer based community organisation of engineering industry professionals who are out to inspire Year 9 & 10 students into taking on the challenges offered to them by Maths & Science. They do this by creating a presentation structure for the student to relate the science concepts that they will already familiar to real word engineering solutions.
In 2012, Industry To Classroom delivered presentations to almost 1,500 Victorian school students and this year their target is 3,000. In this presentation, Srijuth provides an overview of what Industry To Classroom is, how it came about, how it is delivered and how you and your staff can participate in inspiring the youth about where the sciences and maths can lead them.
