Robots, virtual reality and 3D printing are being used to try to help a number of youngsters in Australia widen their future career options. The project, run by volunteers from The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, a number of universities, plus start-ups, proved to be a big hit with some 700 pupils at a recent pop-up event in Sydney. They’re a lot of fun, but scientists say they’re also a great tool for teaching students about the jobs of the future. Hundreds of students from schools in Western Sydney spent the day learning about jobs of the future. They’ve been using drones, 3D printers, virtual reality goggles and robots to understand where technology is headed in years to come.
