The 60 year 10-12 students were focused on STEM learning - the study of science, technology, engineering and maths - and guest speakers from three universities and TAFE explained pathways to pursuing careers in surveying.

In groups the students completed a series of mathematical activities at Hyde Park on March 6 using surveying equipment with the help of volunteer surveyors, to learn the practical applications of maths in the real world.

NSW Surveyor General Narelle Underwood, the first female to hold the role, attended the event and shared her experience with the students.
