Held in place of our High School STEM Internships program (postponed in both 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-19 restrictions), our Meet the Researcher webinars provide a sneak peek into current STEM research at QUT. They are also an opportunity to meet the people behind the research, and hear about how they got to where they are now.

Check out the recordings from the 2021 and 2020 sessions below.
