Perth’s Resources Technology Showcase 2019: Back To School For The Resources Industry

The resources industry has made its way back into the classroom after a hiatus of 20 years with a new pilot program being rolled out to Year 5 and 6 students in the Pilbara next year.

Launched this week by Premier Mark McGowan and Education Minister Sue Ellery, the Resources Challenge: Automation pilot will give students a “hands-on” classroom experience in the fields of automation, robotics and coding.

They made the announcement at the Resources Technology Showcase, during which students immersed themselves in science and technology exhibitions such as one hosted by Shell.
