Happy National Science Week!
Another fortnight has raced by and it’s time to give a recap of what we have been up to. The semester is in full flight and so are we.
We had a Sundowner for our first years and it was nice to see you brave the cold to attend but it only gets warmer from here. I enjoyed meeting some people with fun games at the Gazebo on Matilda Bay.
We went even younger than freshers as we meet prospective students at Open Day.
With National Science Week on this week we held a Q & A Panel Discussion with 5 panel members able to give advice to Science Students on how to get a job, what will distinguish them from the pack and how to trial their career while still at university. The three key themes I took away from all the speakers were: Take opportunities available to you to expand yourself Volunteer work can open up many doors Enjoying your work is key to success at your job
In terms of upcoming events: Celestial Ball Ticket Sales have opened up and is looking to be a great night. Have a look at the Facebook event if you want to get a ticket because they have sold out the past two years! An event for our Second Semester Quiz Night, Quiztopher Walken, which was also a sell out last year will be coming out in the next few days! Later in semester we are planning a Women in Science Breakfast and a Networking Night to meet with industry representatives but there will be more details on that later in semester. I look forward to meeting you at these events!
If you need any help with anything as the semester’s stress and assignments begin to take its toll feel free to shoot a message to UWA Science Union.
That’s all from me until the next newsletter.
