QUT is launching a new YouTube show, Ready STEM Go.

In each episode, host Mackenzi Oliver (current STEM student) will journey into the lives of some our alumnus from around the world. Featuring real stories focussing on the path our alumni have taken to get where there are today.

We hope that students can engage in these conversations and find something in them which will inspire them to consider a career in STEM.

Sharing their experiences on Ready STEM Go are:

Forging your own path
