"I am delighted and honoured to be Patron of the marvellous TechTrails program. As WA's Chief Scientist from 2006-2013, I became acutely aware that young Australians face a changing world where skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics will be key. I have witnessed the excitement of students as TechTrails brings them face to face with 'real' people with amazing careers and they have the opportunity to talk, for example, with a RAAF pilot, a police forensics expert or a biologist saving endangered species. TechTrails is a very special program that can change the lives of young Australians by inspiring them to reach their true potential. What a great way to help build a better future for Australia and beyond."
- Professor Lyn Beazley, AO FTSE, inductee of the Western Australian Science Hall of Fame and former Chief Scientist of WA
