Big Day In 2023

Big Day In 2023

By School Based Officer Sue Seears

This week Darwin High School students, along with students from other Darwin schools were entertained at the Big Day In, a Careers Conference for all things information technology. Presentations from local experts included; Australian Signals Directorate, Defence Force Recruiting, Kinetic IT, Dept of Industry, Toursim & Trade NT and the Dept of the Chief Minister NT. There was also a panel of very young NEW I.T. Professionals from NEC.

Drum roll…. If this wasn’t enough I.T. fabulous…. there was a special presentation from Darwin High School alumni Dylan Bennett from Geek Culture Collective. Obviously the most popular presenter of the day, a born and bred Territorian and an Darwin High School Student graduate AND a video game designer.

The  were very engaged and question time often had to be drawn to a close so that the event ran to time. Special thanks to ACS (Australian Computer Society, the primary partner of this event), sponsors and the teachers that made attendance possible; Ms Emily Parker and Mr Darren Clayton.
