STEM Infographic competition (Swinburne students)

This the first workshop in the STEM Infographic competition for Swinburne students. By taking part in the competition, students will form multidisciplinary teams to produce an infographic solution to unpack a real-world sustainability problem, increase community knowledge, encourage women into STEM careers, and make the world a safer place. Additional workshops will follow, including Adobe training to produce the infographic, research of sustainability issues, and data collection and visualization. The competition will enhance communication and digital literacy skills and build employability for students from different disciplines.
