Young Professionals Group – Week of Engineering Expo

Many thanks to the group of Wellington based NZSOLD YPG members who put together a fantastic interactive stand at the recent Week of Engineering Expo in Wellington.  This is the first time NZSOLD has participated in this event. The team got great engagement and feedback from all who attended, and from the event organisers at Engineering NZ. Franceska Strano who is Co-Chair of the NZSOLD Young Professionals Group, lead the organising and attendance of this and had the following comments after the event:

“Sophie Wilkinson’s sticker designs (‘Dam I’m Good’) were a big hit!




Our stall was kept busy all day with the kids getting stuck into our interactive activity of building mini dams, and asking loads of clever questions. I think it’s fair to say we inspired a few future dam engineers in the process!

Peter Fox’s flyer designs on the path to the dam industry were great too. The older kids and the parents showed great interest in the flyers and said they were of great help for kids preparing for NCEA and University.
