Park Ridge School Students visit Hetech HQ
Hetech had the pleasure of taking the latest Year 10 students from Park Ridge State School through our facility again.
The students are part of the school’s specialist STEM program and planning their career options with a visit to Hetech to see firsthand how advanced manufacturing works.
Following their visit to Hetech, students have the opportunity to join our work placement program or go on to complete a school-based manufacturing course, counted towards their QCE.
After 30 years in the industry, our Managing Director Mark Steiner said that the future of electronic manufacturing was more exciting than ever.
“The possibilities are truly endless. Progression, innovation, the future, it is all happening; but it will only continue if we spark the passion of the next generation,” Mark said.
“Right now, is a very exciting time to be in electronic manufacturing as we are starting to see more work around the technological and environmental problems in industries such as mining and space,” he said.
“New problems and ideas are born every day. It is our job, as professionals in the industry to pass on our passion and experience to the future leaders of our industry – creating awareness and excitement – opening their eyes to a future in electronic manufacturing where they can be the one to solve these problems.”
Park Ridge State High School electronics teacher Wayne Spyve said Hetech had been a terrific support for the student electronics program.
“It is a good opportunity for the students. The kids don’t know these emerging career options are out there,” Wayne said.
“It is rewarding to see the students build on their natural curiosity. Especially afterwards when they come to me and say, Sir, I’d like to work there.
“Listening to Mark share his story gives me with the materials to take back into the classroom to engage and inspire the students. Not only do they learn about electronic manufacturing but they learn what it means to be an entrepreneur.”
