Anything is possible because of you
Our Patron - Professor Lyn Beazley AO
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.

Kinetic IT has been a fervent supporter and partner of Women in Technology Western Australia (WiTWA) since 2016, collaborating with us to successfully deliver our Techtrails STEM & Future Skills Incursion Program across Western Australia. In early 2018 we released our Digital Techtrails Toolkit designed to inspire students, teachers, parents and career changers. The toolkit is based on a "Career Wheel" originally designed by Kinetic IT and licensed to WITWA as the basis of our Digital Toolkit.
We gratefully acknowledge the funding received in 2017 from the Australian Government under a Women in STEM and Entrepreneurship Grant from the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science, to fund this project. The underlying content, support and ongoing collaboration with Kinetic IT has also been invaluable and very much at the core of enabling the WITWA team to deliver this resource to future generations of STEM professionals.
Kinetic IT is excited to be able to help build our local community as well as playing an important role in the development our future IT leaders. — Kinetic IT
